Right…..I think I have a direction to go with these grapes…finally! And I can mix in an architectural element too, best of both worlds! Dionysus being the Greek God of wine, means connotations of Grecian Freizes/ Frescoes, so I had the idea of engraving acrylic to look like marble (ambitious, perhaps?!). Carving out a Dionysus with a bunch of grapes in his hand, and really pitting the grapes then inlaying mother of pearl with a very thin layer of resin, also known as the ‘Raden Technique’ (taught at the Bead Shop this summer by the lovely Lynda Cheney) is what I have in mind. Workshop time!!
