A Busy Christmas Holiday
Emily and I have been busy with our hobbies this Christmas. You’ll recall that Emily is a crocheter extraordinaire and I’ll tell you that after seeing the latest Star Wars episode this week, she didn’t waste much time in designing a BB-8 of her own.
There are more and better photos on her blog, mspremiseconclusion. You can find a link at the side of this page. Tell her I sent you.
In less exciting news, Mervin got a crate to carry. I made the crate by cutting 1/4″ thick slabs of basswood and gluing them together to form a closed box. I did this so that the crate would be hollow and less heavy for the sculpture ( not for Marvin ). After the glue dried, I carved the slats into the crate for this effect.
Emily’s BB-8 is very impressive,i have read through mspremiseconclusion and great talent obviously runs in the family and I’m loving Mervin,I can’t say it enough….all the little details you add to your sculptures are simply amazing,I hope you all had a lovely Christmas together.
