Lapis Humpback Whales
My father was commissioned to carve a humpback cow and calf out of lapis lazuli.
He started with a maquette (plasticine model) The idea was that the mother would be pushing the calf up for its first breath of air. The finished product is shown next to it. Click "Read More" to see the whole process!
Rhyolite Hand Carving
Aaron Ouellette discovered veins of clear selenite crystals in the hole that he was digging for Doug Low's basement, here in Cold Lake, Alberta. Doug was kind enough to invite us to take some for ourselves, and here's some of what we got!
No matter what the find, it is always exciting to collect crystals at the point of origin. So, thank you, Doug Low!
