Every Cactus Has its Thorns

WOW has it been FOREVER since
ive posted anything!
anyway ill be doing a lot of catch up and
you'll probably be seeing a new post
every other day lol

todays post is about my final piece
for my enameling class!
so with out farther or due,
here it is!!!

heres a progress shot,
before it was all attached and

and heres the final piece!!!
i literally had no sleep
all weekend working on this!
i do have to say Ted McDonah is an awesome professor.
you can check out his work on his blog
im really happy with the way this turned out
even though i an avid desert hater
i really enjoyed making this!
though im still not sure why i picked
to do something deserty if i hate it so,
i think its the fact its can be really pretty in the
spring, but everything you touch pokes
and pricks you, so maybe the relation between
you my see a beautiful flower but in the end
it stabs you and brings you pain.
just because its pretty doesn't mean
its something good.

so its kinda like my orchids, they look
pretty but their are nicks, bumps and bruises in the
finish, and its those bumps, bruises and nicks that make
us all unique, nothing is ever perfect.

its lifes imperfections that shows
everyone who we really are.
