One thing that I always take along when I do shows is a sketchbook. Those stretches between customers are a great time for reflection and exploration. The latest show I'm in has been a very fertile ground for sketching - a little thin on customers, but in a very creative setting. There are a number of new ideas I'm looking to explore in the near future.
Having done some faceting in the past, I began to explore the idea of a shattered faceted piece. This ring is the first prototype and while there are things I like about it, it doesn't quite capture the effect I wanted. The lines are a little thicker than I would like and the division of space a little too regular.
