This dial was finished almost a year ago and has been perched in the yard waiting for COVID to lighten up so it can be delivered to the customer in Albuquerque. Thought I'd put it in a place of honor down by the new greenhouse.
Starting a new dial and getting the pieces together. The design will have a ‘garden’ sort of feel with a dial enveloped in forged leaves. Finished the initial forging, both the leaves and the stem texture; now the leaves are off to a vinegar bath to clean off the forge scale.
Between the idea and reality is the shadow
Finally able to safely return the forge. Recovery has been slow and then there were other things that were calling. Finished up the second digital dial. Very similar to the first, but with some minor changes. This will be the first dial in what will hopefully be a sundial garden by our greenhouse.
