Dawning on Icons

Early morning photography, it lends a certain air of mystery to the pictures. Atmospheric.

Decided that there will not be time enough to make use of the madonna and child copper piece and have posted to Etsy. Hopefully someone can use it to make something wonderful. Have been saving for a while but the time has come to let it go.

Very unusual piece, sort of renaissance but the hammered copper has a kind of machine age feeling to it. Wafer thin, but tall and narrow, with a matte finish speckled with patina. Visually striking and different.

Planned to use in an assemblage or collage, an art piece.

Speaking of art pieces, and combining with knitting, check out the shop at goshdarnknit and see that it is possible to combine knitting, graphics, art and read her blog to learn more. Brings mixed media to a whole new level, doesn't it?
