I found this abalone shell on the beach in Northern California. It’s small and inspired me to make some kind of container out of it. It took quite a few tries to make the silicone mold but once it was done I could shoot as many waxes as I wanted. By hand. No clamps used here. I had it cast and then I finished it myself.
Made a silicone mold of a baby abalone shell — going to to try and investment cast it in silver!!
Cut my forms using the lasercamm and then cut the leather by hand. Preparing to make my knife roll!
