Titled: Another Look into My Haunted Forest
Artist’s always sell there best work. This one is for sale.
Framed stoneware tile frieze in krylon green and bronze “liver of sulfur” wash finish.
Peruvian Honduran Mahogany frame
All my tiles start as mahogany relief woodcarvings,then … made into plaster molds, pressed stoneware clay and kiln fired to around 2000 degrees
Bronze 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.
You might want to compare this set of tiles to some of my earlier pieces. Been carving and scratching on the plaster mold sharpening the small details etc. .... adding a little texture and contrast. Hopefully visual interest.
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.
