Cased Angel

A recent sixth plate of a cemetery angel now cased. The case has a new style of closure – a external book clasp. I used to make these before where the foot of the clasp was on the outside of the case, but this time they are embedded in the case shell. This makes the case smoother for handling and sitting on other surfaces. The components of the clasp I make by hand and this one is a bit of a prototype (I will make the hinges thinner) but like the form and function and intend to use on my future cases.
