1″ x 1.25″, found objects

So much of my work is slow and plodding.  Step by small step projects come together, and prevention initiatives almost never show forward progress, usually just helping us avoid collective backsliding.  But sometimes I work on something for long enough that I can see a small change.  The piece at the bottom of this pendant is a cursive “L” from an old printing press.  I love the perspective of looking at it from the side; the whole bulk of the piece and the whole apparatus that stands behind it, just to support that tiny curvy raised surface touching ink and then the paper.  Such a big effort for such a small mark.  But when you put many letters together their power is tremendous.
