Congratulations to Chris and his new wife. Married life seems to have a positive effect on his art. As usual it is beautiful. Here is the work and Chris' email. Just passing the eye candy along.
It's been a while since I finished a new work. A lot has transpired during the last two months including a few weddings (including my own), a few go rounds with the flu, and a show in NYC. I finally managed to find enough shop time to finish this piece and a smaller study of a piece as well.
There are a number of elements to this piece that were new territory for me as far as process is concerned. Mostly Little technical things but important to my evolution none the less. I tried a number of new machining techniques on the BF589 piece and think I finally perfected a plating technique on the K229. Your comments and criticism are welcome as always.
I Hope to be on a more rigorous schedule for the next few months so I should be sending new works in a slightly more timely manner for the better part of the rest of the year.

Wow very nice and shiny.. Must be a pain working with so many diffrent types of metal in one project. (Is that copper, brass and bronze I spy?)
