"Miss Spent Youth"

The frozen moment of energy recording the shot is lost wax cast in black glass and gilded with24 carat gold. A wax cast of a baked bean can was shot with a rifle, then cast in glass, sandblasted for a matt finish and the the bullet hole was gilded. A rural/agricultural childhood spent shooting targets, cans and other debris, and an early training as a gunsmith inspired this work I used my grandfathers gun and bullets by my father to made to create this piece.
