Tree Rings

Tree Rings in Bronze by Allan J Jones
Tree Rings in Bronze

This is a bronze cast I did of a linoleum block carving, of a photo I took of the end of a log on the beach at Carkeek Park in Seattle. It looks slanted because I trimmed the edges of the block to make it easier to remove from the mold … (I used sand casting).

So, let’s see… it’s a photo of a cast of a linoleum carving of a photo. Hmmm, seems like I’m going in circles.

I invite you to visit my website  to view my photos in a gallery format. I also have some photo essays of hiking in Olympic National Park and some examples of other art I have done over the years. Thank you.

Stacked Rocks

I came across these on a small area of rocky beach in downtown Port Townsend. There were some additional cairns and I was amazed that they have remained for a significant period of time. I have done some rock piling … mostly while lazing around camp on a backpack on a river bed. But nothing that got as tall as these. (of course, river rocks tend to be more rounded, adding to the challenge)

Let Me Give You A Hand…

Bronze Hand by Allan J Jones
Bronze Hand

I have been working on updating the documentation of some of the art I have created over the years. I am putting the images on my new website … which includes photo galleries, some portfolio photos of my other art, and a few photo essays of hikes.

This is one of my favorites. It is my own hand, cast in bronze. (I wonder if Van Gogh cast his … oh, nevermind…). I coated my hand with wax, then carefully removed it and used it as a mold and poured paraffin in it and let it harden. I then used the standard investment casting process. I was really happy with the result. It even shows some of my fingerprints. I can’t get my iPhone to recognize the pattern, though.
