This one was a real challenge for me , because I had to make a whole enamelled surface of a 3D hollow object . Something like Faberge ( mantaining differences , of course ) … But it was my first time when I did that , and I was really worried . Even I saw – in my virtual reality , my inner “creation space” – the image of the finished item . I was worried , because I don’t like to experiment in front of others . You know what they say : ” A master Chief will never cook in front of his apprentices. He only give advices .” . And you know why ? Because he is considered a God by his apprentices , and any mistake he would do will ruin his image in front of them forever !! But I’ve had no apprentices there ,  so I disconnect myself from any inhibition of this kind .   Most of all ,  there were people who were “hunting” my eventual mistakes and would use them against me . I was worried , because I would like to experiment that in my own environment , my own workplace , quiet and peacefull – not so clean and perfect like that where I’ve had made the Panther – and listening my prefered music (classical) while I was doing that , not a stupid – the most stupid – radio station I’ve ever heard in my life . And with all that permanent and disturbing noise around me , having nothing in common with a real creation athmosphere . And I was worried , because I knew that some of the people who was waiting for me to fail  , were also artists , who knows VERY WELL that I haven’t had the proper conditions to create and to work  . I’ve had to fight for my personal image . At one moment , there was a funny thing happen : the company owner , comes to me and asked me : “What if this will not work ?” Then I rise my shoulders , smiling at him . I knew it will work , but I also knew he was influenced by someone else , so I prefered to rise my shoulders , smiling and looking in his eyes .That was happened when I was in the middle of the enamelling process , first firing . All the enamelists in this world knows that there is a  major risk in making experiments like that . Mostly first time.   So , it was very difficult  , but I think I’ve done it well . First , I thought to a black panther, but it was too simple , regarding the black colour only. Then , I’ve had search more on the net and I found a beautiful mixture of a black panther and jaguar , and I said : ” Hey ! This is fabulous ! That is what I am searching for ! “ So , I’ve made that spectacular creature . A little “fatty” , but I think it’s a male :)))

Romanian translation   :

Aceasta a fost o adevarata provocare/incercare  pentru mine , pentru ca aveam de emailat intreaga suprafata a unui obiect gol in interior . Ca un fel de Faberge ( pastrand proportiile , bineinteles )…dar era prima oara cand faceam asta , si eram realmente ingrijorat .Chiar daca – in realitatea mea virtuala , “spatiul meu mental de creatie ” , am vazut obiectul finit . Eram ingrijorat , deoarece nu-mi place sa experimentez in fata altora . Stiti cum se spune : “Un maestru bucatar nu va gati niciodata in fata ucenicilor . El da doar indicatii” .  Si stiti de ce ? Pentru ca el are o imagine de zeu in fata ucenicilor lui , iar orice greseala pe care ar putea-o face il va costa imaginea pentru totdeauna . Dar eu nu am avut nici un ucenic acolo, asa ca m-am deconectat de orice inhibitie de genul acesta . Mai mult , acolo erau oameni care imi “vanau” eventualele greseli pe care sa le foloseasca impotriva mea . Eram ingrijorat , pentru ca mi-ar fi placut sa fac acest experiment in mediul meu , in atelierul meu , atat de silentios si linistit – nu atat de curat si de perfect ca locul unde am facut Pantera – si ascultand muzica mea preferata in timp ce lucram , si nu un post de radio idiot – cel mai idiot pe care l-am auzit vreodata in viata mea . Si cu tot acel zgomot permanent si deranjant in jurul meu , care nu avea nimic in comun cu un spatiu de creatie . Si eram ingrijorat , deoarece stiam ca unii dintre cei ce si-ar fi dorit ca sa ratez , erau de asemenea artisti , care stiau FOARTE BINE ca nu aveam conditiile necesare pentru a crea si a lucra . A trebuit sa lupt pentru propria imagine .

La un moment dat , s-a intamplat ceva amuzant : patronul companiei – la care lucram atunci – a venit la mine si m-a intrebat : “Si daca nu o sa iasa ? ” ( Pantera n.m)    Atunci , am ridicat din umeri , zambindu-i …. Stiam ca o sa iasa , dar mai stiam si ca fusese influentat de alte persoane , asa ca am ridicat din umeri , zambind si privindu-l in ochi  . ( Ce sa-i fi spus ? ) Asta se intampla in timp ce eram in mijlocul procesului de emailare , la prima topire . Toti emailatorii din lume stiu ca exista un risc major in astfel de experimente , mai ales prima oara . Deci , a fost foarte dificil – per total – dar cred ca mi-a iesit bine . 

Mai intai , m-am gandit la o pantera neagra , dar mi s-a parut prea simplu , doar culoarea neagra era anost …Dupa aia , am mai cautat pe internet si am gasit un mixaj intre o pantera neagra si un jaguar si am zis : “Hei ! Asta este exact ce caut ! E fabulos !!” Si asa , am facut aceasta minunata creatura . Un pic cam gras , dar se pare ca este mascul :)))
