My Other Art

I once heard the observation that artists are often writers while the obverse isn't always true. Sometimes the reason a writer might not be deemed an artist (apart from writing) may be due to the fact some types of art aren't as readily recognized.


True enough, I write. Yet I also work with wood and metal in ways that could be deemed art of a simple sort.


I crafted the handles in the image (freehand) from zebra wood and oak, with a bit of poplar thrown in. Arthritis makes the hands less steady than I care for, but such is life.


I wish I still had some of the etched blades I crafted from phosphorus bronze and silicon bronze nearly forty years ago.
