Leicester City Council – incense burner

It’s been a while since I posted on here (slap wrist!) so here a picture of one of my more interesting recent jobs. It’s a carved version of an incense burner made to hold part of an original artefact for display by Leicester City Museums. It’s carved from lime, but left untreated so as not to adversely affect the metal remains. The only glue used was a small amount of pva wood glue. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to have the original piece, so had to work from drawings and a cardboard template I made (see first photo).
