Medusa Vase

I've finished my Medusa vase. Medusa's head is on one side and Pegasus, her son, is on the other. 
The top and sides are carved with a fishing net, representing the net Perseus was caught in when he was born.

Triangle Loom


I made myself a triangle loom. I've wanted one for ages. I like to work on it when I'm taking a break from carving on clay. I find it very relaxing. When I'm finished I might put a fringe on it.
