A small bone object inspired by nature

The above small bone object was inspired by the bog plant similar to the one below.

Doing this little piece gave me the opportunity to use the recently completed "workshop" as seen in the photo below.

And another one of the completed piece below - it still requires a bit of fine sanding. It really is a piece to be held like a talisman; or simply enjoyed seen sitting on a ledge.

  2. from plant to bone ... so unlikely a transition and utterly delightful
