I was recently approached by a client at a party, his wife's birthday was fast approaching and he wanted me to create a whimsical charm for her that was based off their last name. Their last name, if spelled incorrectly could mean something completely different.....Kohr vs. Core. I loved the idea of doing an apple core and knew exactly what medium I wanted to work in, bronze metal clay. At first, I wasn't sure how to proceed, but soon decided I should start with a solid cylinder of dried metal clay and carve out my apple core.
The perfect tool for this project was a wooden toothpick.
Almost finished, just need a few more details.
After my charm is fired in a kiln, it is now solid bronze.
I just needed a few more finishing touches to bring the charm to life. First I polished the apple skin to a high shine. Then I decided to keep the apple flesh unfinished for more visual interest. Finally, I used liver of sulfur to blacken parts of the charm and bring out the details.
The final product, beautiful!
