The” Stream of truth gilded cup “is made of Texas hill country walnut turned on a lathe from both ends without a nova chuck then I bandsaw the exterior away from the inner cup lining to accentuate the wings on the ends. The wings are in no way glued on it is all one piece. I then added the side texture with a V chisel in a slight curve and then I painted the inside carving with black paint then overlayed it with gold gesso. I then removed in selected spots the gold to revel the black to add interest. The inside and crack is gold gesso also. Eventhought this is only six inche high and four inches wide It is a powerful piece one has to handle to get the full energy from it. All this and Heaven too.

Your description of the work makes it sound so easy, but one look at the finished work of art makes
you realize that while the work of a craftsman and artist can be described, only one look at the
completed masterpiece reveals the fact that words always fall short. Thank you for sharing another
work of art and making us think.
