Long ago and far away some nice folks brought me some mastadon ivory to do some work on for them. Seeing as how I had no "due date" it kept fallin behind all the stuff that did have a due date. But finally many moons later I have a few pieces to show for all that time. Looking at the picture Taryn took of the first one I did way back then, and seeing how thick the dust and dirt are on it.... you can tell it's been sitting in my shop a while. Well here are some pics.
This first one is a technique I've only used a couple of times, a combination of scrimshaw....and carved down to give it depth.
This was something new I tried. Heavy deep cuts and dots....
