This is an hourglass I was commissioned to make recently, based on a tattoo my customer has of an hourglass with a thorny vine growing up the spindles.
I gave each spindle a unique design element besides just vines and thorns, my favorite being in the first shot where the vine has ‘grown off’ of the spindle using the negative space to add visual interest.
The entire piece was given a solid week of UV exposure to speed up the patina and finished with tung oil.
Thanks for looking!
