A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of some canes I'd made based on Lindly Haunani's version of the Damascus Ladder. Recently, I've also been playing with the traditional Damascus Ladder. I just finished up a couple of pieces using the different canes, and thought I'd share them here.
To me, the canes based on Lindly's version look a bit like pieces of stained glass. There is a special glow that seems to emanate from the clay.
The traditional form of the Damascas Ladder creates wonderful swirls and stripes. I love both looks. How about you. Do you have a favorite?
