Another look into my Haunted Forest
Framed stoneware tile frieze in bronze finish.
Quartersawn white oak.
All my tiles start as mahogany relief woodcarvings,then … made into plaster molds, pressed stoneware clay and kiln fired to 2375
Bronze acid patina finish is produced similar to “David Marks” DIY techniques . I use a combination of materials but a good place to start is /:http://www.sculptnouveau.com.
All works of quality must bear a price in proportion to the skill, time expense and risk attending to their invention and manufacture. Those things called dear, are, when justly estimated, the cheapest. They are attended with much less profit to the artist then those things which everbody calls cheap.
This one is on display and for sale at Funke Fired Arts Gallery in Cincinnati.
Several other pieces may be seen and are for sale at Beauverre/ Riordan Gallery in Middletown
