Live-oak burl . wormy and deteriorated. Salvaged with the use of Epoxy, in 6 colors and augmented by atomized Bronze, silver, and brass as well as powdered and chunked Lapis-Lazuli, amethyst chunks, malachite, azurite, blue Topaz, and garnet. If I would have had anything else of interest I would have added it too. it is 8”wide by 6 1/2” tall

Pressure pot used six times to set the epoxies. Not used in the application of metals and stones ! (CA glue in worm holes and cavities filled with atomized metals and crushed stones).

Phenomenal work. Photo 1 reminds me of the earth, beaitiful. The fish “eye” section, hmmm, that is somewhat scary.

I agree that the eye has a creepiness to it, but holy cow that came out beautiful!
