Chiseled edge by Norman Repacholi
Clear

This is an old Titan brand chisel, much loved and much used. Who knows how many pieces of furniture it’s been used to craft, or hinge mortises its cut out for doors to hang.

I liked all the textures and patina that had developed over years of use. From the nicks in the blade, splashes of paint and chips of wood missing from the handle, to the striations on the bevel of the blade.

All too much for one photo, so I created three images in this set.

Chiseled landscape

Chiseled throat

Chiseled edge

I hope you enjoy them.

All images were shot on a base of figured Australian redgum.

Photography is my passion. I love the challenge of aligning light and luck – the excitement when it works, the disappointment when it doesn’t. I strive to create images that mean something to me. That preserves a moment in time or tells a story. I think most of all, I like creating something you can enjoy for as long as you like from a moment that will never be repeated.
