B Davenport - Otter vase

Bill Davenport (UK)

Otter Vase.

Otters are frequently requested as subjects for engraving, & this pose is obviously suited to the vessel used. It is drill-engraved, & is designed to be viewed from the opposite side of the vase, which adds depth to the composition. William's workshop at Land's End in Cornwall overlooks the Longships Lighthouse & the cliffs, adding inspiration to his engravings of Cornwall & the wildlife.

M Raynes Roberts - Doorway to Athena

Mark Raynes Roberts (Canada)

Doorway to Athena

Athena is the protectress of civilized life, of artesian activities, and in poetry the incarnation of Wisdom, Reason and Purity. The piece shows Athena diamond wheel engraved within a doorway engraved on the opposite side of the sculpture. As the viewer moves around the crystal sculpture the figure of Athena begins to refract creating an alchemy of her own image seen through many doorways symbolic of her qualities and powers as Goddess.
