Titled: Another Look into My Haunted Forest
This one is for sale.
Framed stoneware tile frieze in Terra cotta bronzed “liver of sulfur” wash finish.
Curly maple frame inspired by works by Charles Rohlfs. Butter-cup antiqued mission finish.
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.
