framing suggestion:
Volterra, in Central Tuscany, is an ancient hilltop fortress town that is the home of the Italian
alabaster industry. This very fine gypsum is quarried locally and worked into art and domestic
utensils for home and tourist consumption. The workshop we visited was covered in a fine
layer of alabaster dust: exquisite pieces had been hand-cut and polished from the raw blocks,
leaving what looked like snow - accumulated over years - almost a foot deep in the corners.
Being Italy, the workshop was never cleaned of course, and it looked like a fairy wonderland
with half-finished pieces coated with the talcum-like dust. The owner generously allowed me to
wander all over his workshop with the camera. We couldn't resist an exquisite hand-carved
bowl, bought for a lot less than I thought it would be.
Here, a row of chisels, evidently unused for a while, are ranged against an
alabaster-encrusted wall. Other chisels have probably been lost in the snow for years.

Still life with chisels

A coloured frame sometimes works better than a black or wood-coloured one.
