I didn’t want to re-post this project. But I am about to bust to make everyone aware of the fact that I got 2nd prize in the DFW Scrollers in the “complex fretwork” division of the contest. I entered my Bell Tower Clock I have only been scrolling for two years, so to even place in the contest is a HUGE honor to me!

Cozmo, IMO if you came in second to that, you got robbed. That clock is amazing, and of those 2 pieces it deserved first. I can’t fathom the patience and skill that took. Congrats on your accomplishment.

Cozmo, Congrats! That had to be a hard call for the judges, I feel your clock could have come in 1st as well. Beautiful work.

Cozmo,
I will admit to knowing next to nothing about scrolling…..but I can tell you that I believe that your piece is far, far more appealing to me than what won first place.
