Marvelous Monday

Originally from Northern Ireland, Carla Pennie has set up her studio in her home located in Santa Fe, New Mexico (one of my dream locations).  Of the numerous techniques that she uses with her metalwork, I found her resin inlay work to have this quiet beauty about them.  I like how she incorporates gold and sterling as the material to suspend in the resin.  This first photo reminds of minnows shimmering as the light catches them.

Yet this black resin and ivory inlay is such a strong piece with a tranquil quality as well.  Carla recently began incorporating scrimshaw design in her work.

To see more of her work, be sure to visit her website here.  Hope you enjoy and have a marvelous Monday!
