Early spectrum shades of flame orange and marigold
surrounded by clean work
and gorgeous gleaming copper
which will patinate to a beautiful autumn hue.
My volcano cones are a labor of love: multiple firings and counter-firing give the metal its made-up face, dressing copper up for a night at the opera.
In the center of the vessel sits a high-domed piece of Kingman turquoise
delicious and almost outrageous in its mineral hue.
Perfect band in size 6, gleaming sterling
fits boldly and best on an 'inner' finger: middle or ring
with beautiful code hammered in
whose meaning only I know
It is a prayer and speaks of abundance
a bit later.
