A pair of osprey gryphons. I sandcast them both from the same polymer clay original in November, 2001 -- one in petwer, the other in bronze. Neither gryphon has been treated in any way in this scan. Later I used pewter blacking on the pewter gryphon to bring out the details. The bronze gryphon still has firescale in the recessed areas, so the details are visible without any help from me. I strung the pewter gryphon as a pendant, with leather cord and hematite beads. The loop isn't in quite the optimal location for it to hang nicely, though. The bronze one I've used as a keybob ever since I cast it. Fun fact: I chose an osprey for this gryphon because I wanted something with strong facial markings that would be apparent even in the unpainted metal.
