Commission Accomplished

7 December 2018 It’s done. As difficult as it was to come up with a satisfying composition for the heirlooms, the “engineering” of this Foundling proved to be much more challenging then I had thought. After completing this work, all that was left to do was the anxiety producing prospect of showing it.


They were pleased. Even a few tears of joy were shed.


They had been thinking about purchasing a Foundling for some time but when they realized that they had some family heirlooms looking for a “place to live”, they figured that I could build a Foundling for them instead. It’s difficult enough to make a piece, and even more so to create a work as a commission. Add to that, the parts to be worked with not only need a place to live but be able to live together as well.


As gratifying as it is to create, and as gratifying it is to have a work appreciated, it is even more fulfilling to have made a Foundling that has a history that, this time, is known.

Unexpected
