Absolutely beautiful, the detailing, have never seen such details before. We've had flower motifs in metal for gates or walls, but never this beautiful. Perhaps one day he may want to make a lotus flower?

Holy CRAP! There's a serious future in your man's...uh...future. A future involving mad success with his art form. Mama had no mojitos last night, but did down a half a bottle of cheap wine. Feels like crap today. Must go get bottle of Havana Club. Oi.

Those are beautiful! Is Mark going to do any of the Saturday Markets in Bend this summer? If he had a portfolio of past work to show, I would think he would get all of the commission work he could handle! I know the furniture makers all seem busy taking orders during the shows we've done.

That laurel handle is fabulous!!

Love your new blog colors! I got bored with mine and changed, too. It's quicker and easier than painting walls, right? :)

Marie Louise said...

Wow - those handles are absolutely beautiful. Incredible workmanship.

Oh, my...such a talent that boy has. I have always been partial to ginko leaves. There was a ginko tree in the playground of our gradeschool and I used to collect the leaves back in the day...who would've known.
