Apparently the phrase ‘to take the bull by horns’ originated in the American West where it would be an everyday practice for cowhands to have to control bulls and steers (young bulls) although if i’m honest that had very little bearing on this piece. I just thought it was a particularly fitting name…
Anyway I just love working on slate. It looks great and has such a tactile quality so expect more to come.
