Christmas Ornaments

Shoe Ornament #1, 2010
 Two Christmas ornaments I made as gifts.

Shoe Ornament #2, 2010


Table Clock, 2010
This was made from a 4"x4" piece of brass I had lying around. Since making this one, I have seen many antique, etched clocks and inspires me into making more clocks in the future.

Wall Clock, found at Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC.

This clock is in Biltmore Estate. I liked the two metals to give it a contrasting appearance. (Sorry for the poor photo. This was hanging in a roped-off hallway and I had to shoot it with the zoom on my phone at an weird angle.)

I definitely want to try a two-toned one like this with brass and stainless steel.

Antique Wall Clock
This wall clock was hanging in a antique shop. It's hard to make out, but there is a nature scene etched within the center circle.
