Celtic Tree of Life- Cast Paper - yggdrasil



  • Details
    Celtic Tree of Life
    A smaller version of my signature work.

    The Tree contains the 7 Celtic life forms, Plant, Insect, Fish, Reptile, Bird, Beast, and Man. The lower half represents the potential and code for life that is passed from generation to generation, while the top half reveals the current manifestation of that life.

    This description is on the back of each piece.

    The frame dimensions are 12" x 16" and 1" deep.


    Paper Casting
    Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me to use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different from the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing the wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
    While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edges or new pigments. I spend about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

    Perfect! Recipient loved it and hung it immediately. Such beautiful art!

    I’ve been a fan of their work for a while. I love seeing their art at DragonCon. Glad I finally bought one.

    Apologies for the late review Kevin -- this was beautiful as I knew it would be! I've been wanting to get a cast paper piece from you at the Dublin Irish Festival for years and years and am glad I finally got to get one for my house. This is one of the most beautiful and unique pieces of art I've ever seen! I also have to compliment you on your packaging -- this was so well packed that I'm sure it could've survived a hurricane! And it came very quickly! I ended up getting a custom cherry frame for it and it really pops! It's one of the main features in my house next to some old books and fossils, etc. on the fireplace mantle. I'm so very pleased, and I can't thank you enough for the work that you do. I appreciate it very much! Take care!

    OH MY GOSH!!!! Yes, I literally said these words out loud when I opened the carefully wrapped package that arrived in record time( during covid AND during the holidays! THANK YOU) . This piece is STUNNING. The photos online do not convey the depth and sensitivity of the artistry in this piece. If you are considering…. Wondering…. Just place your order. If is exquisite - the colour, detail, relief design and narrative are absolutely satisfying : tender and strong at the same time. The package arrived in record time. THANKYOU to the artist- the seller. You have given us an heirloom, a cherished treasure. Your work is valuable and well received and very meaningful.

    All good, a few more words
