I have been busy soldering and doing some stained glass in the past week. As some of you may already know I have an infinite affection for Spiders and Their Webs. I intend to capture their lovely homes in my garden or else where with the coming of Spring; by then hopefully I wouldn't botch up the picture and know how to take a good one. Of course with the warmer weather there are other ventures that I am particularly anticipating on doing such as taking more pictures of the Giant Wild Carrot growing haphazardly on a country roadside, Queen Ann's Lace, Yarrow, Roses, Rock Walls and Steps, Moss, Fungus , Birds , and but of course not forgetting to go fossil hunting and using my new toy, the metal detector the family bought me, actually two of them so I will have some company along side me to keep me sane....haha! With this basket of scrumptious goodies I'm sure to have plenty of elements for future art endeavours. So I have much to keep me occupied and I better gather up some books from the library and online book stores for me to study.
Well here they are........ but there're not from Mars although they could very well be from looking at their appearance......that's if there is life on Mars...haha!
Daddy Long Legs or War of the Worlds...M named him that....can you guess why?
Vintage Crystal Spider Wire and Solder Art
A Pen/Pencil Holder with Spider Soldered on it's edge
Another wire soldered Spider....These are great on door screens or window screens as well as so many other places.
Then I got this vision of a web hanging on the edge of an old antique portrait frame ....what would it be like....well this is it! I adore how it turned out...I have another antique frame that I'm working on in a much larger size and it has the most lovely painted Victorian Violets....can't wait to finish it.
I guess you can tell I'm thinking of Spring and summer weather...yup Damsel Flies, Dragonflies Sun-catchers, all in green..... should have posted them for Saint Patty' s Day.
This Dragonfly lost it's head , or should I say I did. I used an antique Victorian cut metal button, even has the back for hanging.
And this is a Victorian Heart Flower...a heart within a flower Sun-catcher sculpted the solder as well in this one piece.
For some of you visitors this is a pendant I made a few weeks back.I hope to get the "Catch the Fallin Star" done soon.
This is M's most recent Dream Catcher...two Dream Catchers in one....Sure to catch all the good dreams for sure!
Until next time Happy Creating in all Art Forms.
