Iron Horn - Monumental - Worked at home today

I received a cut to the calf of my right leg Thursday. Saturday evening I ended up going to the local doctor to have it looked at. It was infected. So I've been on antibiotics for the past three days. It's so much better today, but I just don't want to aggravate it with a pants leg and the environment of the studio for at least one more day.
I decided to make strings of beads today in my home office. Here is a photo of a string of clay beads. I cut at every 7th bead. The marks on the cutting board align with each bead. This Helps speed up the work.


The video shows the stings stacking up.

Well that plate and one other full plate was a full days work. I'm going to try to get two more plates filled. I will probably work at home again tomorrow. I'll make more beads and then create the seven feathers for the shield here as well.
