I made 18 pens yesterday! One of my galleries let me know they’d sold all their inventory and needed more. So I figured I’d make plenty to send to several galleries before the holiday season.
These were lots of fun and I was able to make so many in a day as these were using up bits of old canes. Many were just enough for one pen, or two. So I accomplished two things; inventory and some housecleaning of the cane drawer! Recognize any canes? A few are the leftover bits from the caning book. Many are leftovers from projects requested by Polyform Products.
My daughter grabbed the one on the left side and pointed out that it didn’t really “fit” with the others… She’s right. That one was a leftover chunk of translucent cane I did to simulate watermelon tourmaline. I layered a translucent flower on top. It turned out nicely, but it really does have a different aesthetic than most of my work…
Have an awesome weekend.
