The sharpness of the lines and the durability of the finished product are the main attractions. Every model is handmade from beginning to end. It is a time consuming task, but it is also very pleasing to watch the work coming to life.
Calligraphy was my way to share with my friends’ special events. I have given them a few of my main pieces. They have expressed a great desire to purchase more, had they had the chance. So, here we go friends! Thank you and I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy making it.
