I'm off to the International Netsuke Society Convention in Beverly Hills tomorrow, so I've got just enough time to post some photos of recent work. When I get back, I'll update the post with some fuller descriptions and a review of the event.
This one's entitled "Curlew & Crab", in reindeer antler with horn inlays. The curlew is depicted with a wing extended on the recto, and then tucked back in a broken wing bluff on the verso. The crab lies on seaweed, or sand; whichever pleases.
Next is "Chrysanthemum"; a delicate vignette carved into a black bear canine.
Finally, a new squirrel: box, horn and semi-fossilized antler
For those who can make it to the convention, be sure to stop by and have a chat. It looks to be a well-planned event!
