I’ve always loved making circular designs, probably from my pottery background. We were living in the mountains of North Carolina when I made this design. We had a large, Percheron draft horse at the time. This 48″ diameter sawmill saw blade was engraved with grinding tools and colored with oxidation colors or heat colors, using a large torch. The work proceeds from hot to cold so as not to change areas that have already been colored.
I made a coffee table frame with a steel hoop edge for a couple of these.
