Do you know what this 福山城の骨董市へ。印台ゲット!めっちゃカッコいいゼ!!It's a stone holder for making stamps #stonecarving #篆刻

One of the iconic Sri Lankan pieces of art. The Isurumuni Lovers is a stone carving depicting the age old story of a royal prince giving up everything for the love of a lower cast. While the security around the piece was lax, there was a man stationed within the room full of stone carvings. And even though there was a sign, obtaining photographing permission just required a few head bobs.

Elephant pond carving at Isurumuniya rock temple. It was entertaining to watch folks trying to throw their coins into the small alcove above the carving.

The tooth chisel in action...look for the full episode on this invaluable tool to come! We have been extremely busy in recent weeks planning, shooting and editing our videos, but are nearing the official launch of our full-length segments. Also, some exciting news...we will be heading to Ireland soon to interview stone carvers throughout the country!

Just sliced up some tourmalated quartz, I’m thinking necklace or bracelet. Anyone have a preference?

Inspiration is back! ✨

This shiny cutie is the first piece I electroformed this year! So happy to be back to work, to create and enjoy the process and the result 😊

If you are an artist and suffer from lack of inspiration, try buying new supplies or go through your materials to find something awesome, but forgotten! It helped me a lot, I recieved few packages of stones, crystals and chemicals.
In result I don't want to do the dishes or go to the grocery store or whatever I should do about the house today, the only thing in my mind is "what piece should I start with? Maybe some crystal jewellery? Or tentacles? OH WAIT, I want to finish that thing woth ship and octopus!" 😆

Now I just hope that hyperinspiration will spread to photoshooting too 😅 At least I will be posting a lot of process in my stories tomorrow, don't miss it!

RU:
Вот и вдохновение вернулось ✨

Этот блестяш - первая моя работа в этом году! Наконец-то возвращаюсь к увлекательной работе над новыми украшениями, буду наслаждаться сначала процессом, а потом и результатом своих трудов 😊

Если вы тоже художник (ну как ещё в общем это назвать?) и тоже страдаете от нехватки вдохновения, попробуйте купить что-то новое для работы, или переберите запасы материалов в поисках чего-то прекрасного и вами забытого! Мне это очень помогло, получила несколько посылок с камнями, кристаллами и химией.
В итоге не хочется идти за продуктами, мыть посуду или делать ещё какие-то повседневные дела, в голове только мысли вроде "с чего бы начать? Может что-то с кристаллами? Или щупальца? ТОЧНО! Хочу доделать вот ту штуку с кораблём и осьминогом!" 😆

Теперь остаётся надеяться, что этого гиперзаряда хватит и на фотографирование 😅 Как минимум, завтра я буду выкладывать много процессов в истории, так что не пропустите!) #jewerly #electroformed #electroforming #electroformingartist #handmade #copperart #instaart #artistsofinstagram #labradorite #leaf #stonecarving #talisman #amulet #handmade #etsy #bubblebirdart #earthy #crystallove #witch #witchy #witchyvibes #witchesofinstagram #fantasyart #makersgonnamake #truedetective #truedetectiveart

Having a little play with some different materials and carving some spirals into stone. Extremely therapeutic 😍 Lots more to do and a lifetime of learning about this fascinating world, but been nice to try something completely different 🖤🌀

MOUNT RUSHMORE WEEK!!!
-'Teddy' Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) served as America's 26th president. -Roosevelt was shot in 1912 by a would be assassin but was not seriously injured.
-He not only represented the industrial development of the nation, but was also widely known for conservation efforts. - "Speak softly and carry a big stick—you will go far."
-There is a cave behind the carving called the "Hall of Records." It was intended to house the story of Mount Rushmore but was never completed due to lack of funding.
Hope you enjoyed Mount Rushmore week!! Powered by @rocco_masons

🇰🇭 The south gate of Angkor Thom is the best preserved gate and at the entrance, there is a row of 54 devas, or guardian gods, that pull the head of a naga (serpent), and on the opposite side, a row of 54 asuras, or demon gods, pulling the naga's tail. They are part of the Hindu myth of the Churning of the Ocean of Milk in which the body of the naga is being pulled in different directions, causing the ocean to churn and create the elements to form the earth and cosmos. There's actually a ton more to the story and it's worth a read, especially if you're going to Angkor Archaeological Park as it has ties to several other temples and carvings there.

This beautiful bear sculpture was a recent 'Air Import' from the Ice House Gallery in Canada. We delivered it safely to a lovely lady in Galway on Tuesday and we are thrilled that she was delighted with the service.
.
The artist, Ken Nichols, a First Nations artist, has been carving all of his life.
. 
He says:
"My artwork is inspired by the gifts given to us by the Creator. I work mainly in stone with accents of moose antler, mammoth ivory, wood and bone to create one of a kind sculptures. I am inspired both by my own culture and other First Nation's cultures. I study other forms of First Nation's art - when I see great art it encourages me to continue to develop my own style."

Some of the #pillar and #pilaster #capitals in #stpeters #church #vauxhall.

The crispness of the carving and the variety of the subject matter is a real joy to behold.
Here we have two of the #virtues from the #ladychapel, #prudence and #temperence, Ive always wondered what they look like. 
Some #foliate work, and #Christ in the carpenters shop, and Christ crucified from the #nave.

A piece from our new series of footed vessels in Vermont Marble.

Unusual author's series of bronze sculptures "Life of parallelepipeds" is reflections on relevant, urgent topics by metaphorical images of geometrical figures. 
The first sculpture "Adam and Eve" of this series was chosen for a reason. It's based on the well-known biblical story about forefathers of all mankind. The main idea of the work conveys easily despite of its simple minimalistic form due to the element looks like a fruit of the tree of the knowledge - a symbol of the first people's sin. //
Необычная авторская серия бронзовых скульптур "Жизнь параллелепипедов" - это размышления на актуальные, насущные темы через метафоричные образы геометрических фигур. 
Первая работа "Адам и Ева" этой серии выбрана неслучайно. В основе - известный библейский сюжет о первородителях всего человечества. Идея скульптуры легко читается несмотря на простую минималистичную форму благодаря элементу в виде плода Дерева познания - символа грехопадения первых людей.

As recommended by artist Sean Lynch #fridayreading - “If readers are interested in some of the ideas discussed in my interview about museums and the public sphere, I recommend Dan Starling’s book The Culture Industry and the Propaganda Factory. Published by New Documents in 2014, Starling remakes Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory into a series of satires and allegories about the instrumentalisation of art.”

Detail from the Dhamek Stupa, Sarnath.

These exquisite floral and geometric patterns belonging to the Gupta period (240 to 590 CE), have long since disappeared from our traditional stone carving vocabulary.

The collapse of the Gupta empire ended ancient India's golden age and with it came a discontinuity in our arts and sciences. Much died out; among them Hellenic influences in sculpture, Persian methods of stone polishing (which survived in India for centuries after Alexander destroyed the Achaemenid empire). Perhaps these patterns too suffered the same fate.

Perhaps these patterns too suffered the same fate. Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh. 04/2014.
