Claddagh - Cast Paper



  • Details
    an Irish favorite

    The Claddagh is Ireland's most romantic tradition. The hands signify soul friendship, the heart's true love, and the crown eternal loyalty. The design is a wish for friendship and love to prevail.

    The Claddagh Story is on the Back of each Piece.

    Friends and family their love impart and Irish blessings in your heart.

    Irish Blessing - wedding gift - Celtic art - Ireland - love - anniversary - heart - knot - valentine's day

    The frame dimensions are 10" x 10"

    Pairs with "Love Knot"

    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.
