Generations - Cast Paper



  • Details
    The ancient Celts revered great trees. The acorn was seen as a symbol of fertility and rebirth. This design is another version on a theme I have done in many mediums throughout the years.

    It symbolizes the passing of life and experience from generation to generation.

    The frame dimensions are 12" x 16"

    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.

    Gorgeous!! We purchased four pieces to mount together. They look wonderful!!

    Wonderful piece--perfect as a first anniversary gift. Thank you!

    I absolutely love this piece and so did my brother & his wife. I had actually purchased several other things from this same artist 2005 at a Celtic Festival. The favorite was a wedding knot (can'tremember exactly & I'm not home!)that I bought for my parents' 50th anniversary. They displayed it for many years & now I have it in my home. I was thrilled to find the same artist again! The artwork is just beautiful, and unique. Plus I only ordered a week before Christmas & received it in just a couple of days. Very highly recommended!!
