Bronze tiles and Plum Blossoms



Here are a couple of photographs of James' (my partner) new work which he just finished, he took his inspiration for these two tiles from an antique Japanese iron kettle. The sculptings you see here will be turned into molds from which bronze tiles will be cast by our friend Jay Gibson at Metaphor Bronze in Morrill, Maine. Whilst he is imagining them as tiles I am thinking about them as chocolate bars!!!

They resemble rubber stamps to me! Welcome to the blogosphere! I will link you on my calicocatpress blog! I can't make any promises of additional traffic, but perhaps someone will take notice of your name on my links list. I'll come back and see more later.

They look very beautiful as they are, I can't imagine the process of turning them into bronze. I love anything Japanese, I think they are such masters in the decorative arts.
