Variety

Day two of shamelessly promoting my hubby's artwork.

Mark works in a wide range of styles as seen here in this custom wood box he designed and made a few years ago.

His work is incredible. Happy (belated) 17th Anniversary too! I love looking at wedding photos and you guys look so elegant.

decadentdiamond said...

Oh wow! How beautiful!!! I really want one now, or two, maybe three. The leaf cluster drapery rod is so lovely too, my mother would absolutely adore it!

Fog and Thistle said...

He is so talented. I love that you keep showing him off! More, more, more!

There's nothing shameful about showing off gorgeous work.

Angela said...

His work is SO amazing! I can see this in some Hollywood celebrity's Idaho getaway. Sundance Catalog all the way.

Hey Harriet said...

Again, beautful work! A very talented arty hubby you have there! But hey, can he cook? ;)

High Desert Diva said...

cooking is definitely not his strong suit!

GrayEyedScorpio said...

What great work! His details demand my eye's attention.

Grizzly Mountain Arts said...

Don't need to apologize for displaying your husband's work:

1. Your helping him in his trade
2. We like his stuff!

So bring it on, show us more!

All the best Eamon

By the way, can your husband work with wood as well as metal?

geenah said...

Your DH does lovely work. I think it's great that you show it off. My DH has been working with sheet metal making roses.

If you'd like to see a picture, there's one on my blog. Thanks for sharing.

He hasn't done any wood carvings or sculptures, but he can build with wood. See March 12th post for the garden shed, picket fence and arbor he made at our old place.

These are works of art. That woodbox is far superior to the woodbox I am using now (a drawer from an old desk that we took apart when we threw it out...)

You married a very talented man.

Thanks for these inspiring pics.

Victoria said...

It would be shameful not to show off your husbands work! What a talented man!

Karen from A`Musements said...

Okay, first of all I apologize. I thought I commented about the drapery rods which are INCREDIBLE, but realize I am off my meds and deluded... Mark's craftsmanship is to die for... VERY WONDERFUL PIECES!
Has he made the Diva a crown to wear whilst in bed, eating her bon bons?

His work SHOULD be shamelessly promoted, he is an amazing craftsman in metal & wood! Tell him to get some of that stuff in his shop :~)

Mrs.French said...

This is amazing! Does he sell his masterpieces somewhere locally?

M.KATE said...

i'd be promoting my hubby work too...if only he's that talented, but really the detailing is awesome!
