The Phoenix


Art: The Phoenix by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
"This is my entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please be sure to search for NFAC to see more great entries, each starting at just 99ΒΆ. Thanks!" This piece is a chasing on sterling silver and 24 kt. gold foil (keum boo) cut to be an ACEO. Chasing is a technique where lines are inscribed into metal using a series of small chisels and punches. This is for the March Nibblefest contest and is titled " The Phoenix". The phoenix is a strong personal symbol to me, the way that it regenerates and reinvents itself. In many ways, I am trying to do the same thing with my art now that my kids have grown and i have left teaching college to concentrate on it. I used fire to make it, certainly appropriate. I hope that you enjoy it!
