I belong to an art gallery and this month we decided to have a special event where we would partner with a fellow artist and create a collaborative art piece. I was fortunate to have Peter Steele as my partner. Peter has come up with a photographic process in which he transfers images to glass called “Solarography”. This was a particularly challenging exercise for me since you don’t want to overshadow your partner nor do you want to be the weak link, but rather compliment each other. The base is Mahogany, pillars are Maple and the frame is Bubinga. The finish is polyurethane. All comments are welcome,

Cal,

Nice detail that doesn’t overshadow or try to outdo the “solargraph” (is that the name?).

I like the choice of wood and the ways in which you used and shaped it all.

Is it sort of like stained glass then in that it can be backlit?

I’d love to see more pictures!

Great pic, and display. We have a wall of sunsets from pics we took from our travels around the world. I have never heard of this process of putting in glass. Nice job on the frame and not taking away from the art.

Wow, very nice. It almost looks to me like open curtains on a picture window.

And I thought it was the latest High Def TV !! LOL Great job : )

I think the background color takes away from your wood choices however. JMHO : )
