Reliquary Project: Handle

Since the form has been simple, the handle should probably also fall into that category. I did play around with driftwood branches, rocks and carved walnut, but simple straight lines prevail.

More sanding and addition of a slight bevel to the base will most likely happen today. Plus gluing of handle parts. In the photos below, the handle is not actually assembled.

Exterior finish will be a Danish oil or similar treatment. Window coverings of leaves will be applied after exterior finished. Tuesday seems to be set for covering the wire sculpture with hog gut. My friend Wendy will be coming over to play with all the extra guts. LED fixings should come home tonight.  Will I make it to Ginger Steele’s workshop on Saturday? I hope so!
