I promise, this this the last time I give voice to clams (until next time). This time their messages are full of love and care.
On the other hand, I’m working on new projects, so, soon new pics of real calligraphy with real texts
New messages from our friends the clams
Ok, the last one does not really speak english, it’s a word to word translation of the french for holy cow ! 😉
I was recently telling you about things clams have to say and insisted on the fact that it wasn’t really enunciated sayings.
I first received some protests which were not really convincing.
Then I received other ones and I now have to admit that clams are not clumsy 🙂
Some can play (& even win) a tic-tac-toe game.
And others are scholarly, they know latin, psalms & english and are even able to arrange bilingual play on words.
In short, I’d like to apologize to all clams I may have offended and hope to hear from them soon.
Well then, they are clams, not philosophy professors 😉
All these clamshells have been acid etched, the last one I decided to etch the number and not the surrounding because of the shades of the shell that would have been lost otherwise.
New year, new rotten play on words 🙂
Acid-etched A after the cut-out of a disk in a scallop-shell.
Makes a nice pendant, dont you think ?
Fridge ornaments, engraving on zinc and shell.
Not only zinc is sensitive to acid. Limestone is too and, shells are made of limestone !
A first try, just to verify :
