EMERGENT STAR OF SILVIUS
15" x 21"

Emergent Star of Silvius. After a circular niello (black enamel technique) panel from the work of Baltasar Silvius, a 16th century artist and publisher who published one of the first European books on ornamental design. Carved into bookmatched Sitka spruce. Although comprised of only some 850 cut lines, this is a challenging piece due to the difficulty of the cuts. Each line has some six to twenty cutting strokes.
