The RBS base is done!

At least the tung oil portion is dry.  I’m leaving it up to Tom to put it all together.  If you don’t have any idea what RBS means check back here.  (Make sure you click around to see pics of work in progress.)

    AWESOOOOOOOOOOOOME! Thanks so much for being a part of this, Tina! I love the way it turned out, and I’ve been fooling around with it since I got it back. I can’t wait to get the mounting done for it so it’s an officially finished complete work. It really looks wonderful. Thanks for spending so much time on it.

    Oh, and I agree with you on your favorite photo angle. It looks great in that picture.

    Thanks, Alice! You should see it in person! It’s also fun to play with.

    I totally love the interplay between your rectilinear work and the curves of the RBS interplay. The stained patterns are amazing. Who’d a thought such intricacies could be done neatly with stain!

  10. Tina Says:

    I have to say thanks. I’ve spent a decent amount of time over the years working on patterns and clean lines with my stains. Thanks for noticing!

    Any more thoughts on that bracelet??

  11. […] I finally set about putting the finishing touches on the rolling ball sculpture for which my friend Tina made the base. Getting some help on a base was a new twist on my sculpture building, short though its history may […]
