If you are in New York City, I highly recommend that you visit the
Museum of Art and Design and view the stunning work of Daniel Brush.
His first book, where I have dogeared pages and studied closely the
photographs of his lush and brilliant work, do no credit to the
actual work of this master. I am humbled, both in his masterful
execution of chased steel, his manipulation of gold granulation and
now the CONCEPTUAL and PLAYFUL work in steel, and micro-pave diamonds
that look tossed yarn threads on a floor. Wow oh wow oh wow.
His book depicting the collection of monarchs with delicately scribed
gold on butterfly wings, gently tossed onto finely chased steel with
custom rare earth magnets left me wordless. They tiny round box
(there are four now) with the mandala like quality of granulation
that took him two years to fire is an exquisite masterpiece, not to
mention that the granulation spheres are about .25mm each.
Go and see this magnificent work. If it has been mentioned before my
post, I apologize for not reading up sooner.
Thank you Mr. Brush. You are a true master. I am humbled at your
execution of this craft and am very glad you play in metal.
