In the Beginning by IkaikaDesign In the Beginning by IkaikaDesign
In the beginning we are but a thought and a seed. It is up to us to grow and forever reach for the stars.

Still on my spiritual kick. Recently attended a craft show near DC and came across a beautiful artist who worked in paper casting. His art was, to be blunt, some of the most spiritual and inspiring pieces I've come across in a long, long while. After leaving his booth I began milling over the different designs in my head and low-and-behold I finally got my spark back!

I absolutely love this.. I might have to do a spin off of it in my own design for a tattoo I'm thinking about on my back, if you don't mind?
But this is stunning.. I love how it feels "top-heavy", but still balanced, and I love how you've combined the celtic knots with "melting" tree branches.. Very lovely :)

I don't mind a spin-off at all, and thank you for your kind remarks. =)

I carve decorative designs into materials like wood,glass tile, porelain, marble, granite, stone. It is a decorative form of sandblasing where designs are etched or carved into the material. I am in the learning stages of how to do theses decorative forms of sandcarving.
