Lesson from the Maestro

I recently had the honor to meet an Italian master stone carver and renaissance throw back...Dario Tazzioli...I was introduced to him by Olivia Kim an accomplished sculptor who also happens to date Dario. Dario was visiting the US for the Holidays and showed me how to trim a feather into a nib. The pictures are of some of our experimentation with the newly cut nib...Dario has also promised to send me recipes to make my own inks out of such materials as oak galls and black walnuts...stay tuned and I'll post them on the blog...also I'm hoping to figure out a way to go and study in Italy with Dario in the near future...if anyone wants to donate to my fund...(wink, wink)...
