A Historical Novel in Metal and Wood by Tom Curran

I've been working on this gun for a while, designing, shaping, carving. And it strikes me that this is akin to composing a piece of music or a poem. The carving is far from done, and the wood not finished, but there is something compelling about the light, the tools, and textures that reminds me of a Flemish painting perhaps, or a Tom Waits song....

We look forward to seeing the completed gun, one day...
