Its a very old thread and pictures at the time where still uploaded directly to the forum. From time to time; the admin has to create space for new pictures, as space costs a lot of money. Thats why we are reminded from time to time to upload pictures via outside providers the like of Flicker or Photobucket and/or to donate towards a found to pay for the upkeep.

Remind me by Saturday and I will reload the pics through Photobucket.

Best regards, Kurt

Your carvings are always so interesting to me Kurt.
But when you sent that Koi to Amanda for her finishing design, Wow, that one takes my breath away. It is awe inspiring.
Great job to two great designs:)

Oh kewl!!! I didn't see this thread til you bumped it Todd:).

I got the dolphins:P. They are BEAUTIFUL, and I also got Kurt's incredibly symbolic yin/yang, which is a phenomenally creative piece, as well as some cabs too (I got seriously spoiled in that trade:))!!! Kurt really is very very talented, and it's amazing that he does it with a hand tool and no grinders or laps or anything!!! The stone was very hard and dense, and the design was just perfect!! Kurt is and has always been quite a marvel... has anyone seen Kurt's fire agate work? Just amazing too!!

Amanda's beadwork fits that carving so well.  Sure does look good.
