Titled: Path to the Tree of Life
Artist’s always sell there best work. This one is SOLD to a repeat customer in UTAH.
Framed stoneware tile triptych in bronze finish.
Quartersawn white oak with Ohio black walnut.
Finish is vinager/steelwool ebony in the corners and back of frame. Next is dark oak dye stain, mahogany oil stain and buttonlac shellac followed by walnut paste wax.
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.
