I found this carving today. It was in my bookcase, under some cd’s. Been looking for it for years.
Carving is inspired by Ernest Batchelder artwork. Very similar landscape, but my own version. Made this one several years ago using a ” Harbor Frieght ” air-pencil.
I used this carving to make a plaster mold, which is used to make clay tiles.
Photo one is the carving.
Photo two is a detail of the carving and a detail of a glazed tile, which shows the amount of wear on the plaster mold. It is the most recent tile pressed from the mold. Probably around tile 40.
Photo three is one of my original clay tiles also cast from the same mold. It is included to contrast the amount of detail lost in the plaster after it is used for awhile. Many times the tiles get better, the more the plaster mold is used, and most of the time it takes a few tiles to get the best look for the clay tile.
