Izzy, I don’t think those are rustic. May be fine art . . . but not rustic.

Certainly not characteristically rustic at least not in my mind… Perhaps call these New Age Rustic… But that is just off the cuff… Certainly would label as fine work!!! Cant say I’ve seen much if anything in the same category. Thanks again for sharing…

Maybe you could call it Arts & Crafts Rustic, as it’s more tailored and refined than most rural rustic type of art. It is indeed a very nicely crafted piece. It shows you have spent time in the design as you have in the fabrication.

welcome to LJ’s..that table deserved a posting of it’s own, as does the mirror. Both are wonderful. You have a style all your own.

Izzy, do you have any finish on these pieces? Its hard to tell from the photos, but it kind of looks like you’ve used something that isn’t too glossy. One other question. Do you have plans for the frame piece. It would look good with just about anything in it. A mirror or an “old west” type photo that has been distressed would look good.
