Can You Burn A Hole Through Gold?

gold sculpture Surel's Place

I did. It was exciting. Burning a hole through gold with my torch was an adventure in goldsmithing initiated by an artistic whim. It was a calculated risk. I admit I made sample pieces, but every metal responds differently, so you never know what to expect. Isn't it beautiful?

Beautiful Risk Sculpture by Melissa osgood

This piece is titled Beautiful Risk. A shiny reminder to take risks daily as the results can be so very beautiful. 

The four quadrants create a compass of sorts. A familiar orientation, perhaps moving toward risk. Experiences settle in as texture in the lower corners. The metal accumulates high in the center burn-out, the risk is high, attainable. The 14K wires stretch and ground on the metaphorical material plane.
