His combination of masterful overlay technique, and a notable sense of design, has brought him widespread renown.
Both are displayed in this handsome bolo, about the size and shape of a fabric tie knot.
Smaller in size than some of his work, it is covered in the artist’s favorite. geometric pattern of storm and cloud symbols.
These are not only decorative, but very good luck.
The design is flawlessly cut out and overlaid; the base is darkened with acid.
This highlights the crisply delineated, polished pattern, which gives the piece richness and depth.
There is a satisfying interplay of angular, triangular and gently rounded lines in the form of the bolo.
The tips are sleek cylinders, slightly brushed for a muted finish, and diagonally cut open at the bottom.
This distinctive bolo can be worn for business and more formal occasions, and for the casual, as well – by either men or women.
