Another Small Quartz Sculpture


Well-known member
Included quartz, epoxy putty, acrylics, sandalwood, around 3" wide.

A more "modern" looking doojiggy. Made for my sweetie's birthday twenty or so years ago.

This started out as a chunk of quartz with a lot of inclusions (I don't know what they are). I cut it in such a way that it's a crude faceted stone. By exceeding what is called the critical angle in the pavilion, I created the illusion of a hole going through it. There isn't one. The blue stuff is epoxy putty painted to look like lapis. I fitted the quartz to it by the same method used in the rutilated quartz sculpture. Both sit atop a disk of sandalwood. The whole thing comes apart, nothing is glued.

I like using wood with flaws for bases in pieces like this. Makes it more interesting, at least to me.


No piece of paper from the City Hall, but as of now twenty-four years of living happily in sin.
