    The Keepsake Story
    This straw woven cross is associated with Brigid of Kildare, a patron saint of Ireland, and with an older pagan goddess Brigid as a sun wheel.

    It is said to protect a home from fire and is often hung in kitchens for that purpose.

    ☙ What is Cast Paper? ❧
    Cast Paper is handmade paper that is molded to create dimension. The process I use is self-developed and unique.
    ■ Step 1 - I carve an original out of wax. This can take a very long time depending on the size of the piece.
    ■ Step 2 - I make a rubber mold from the original carving. Multiple castings can be made from a mold.
    ■ Step 3 - We take 100% cotton fiber and grind it with water to a workable pulp. This pulp is worked and pressed into the mold.
    ■ Step 4 - The casting is dried, trimmed, and checked for imperfections. Not all casting make it past this step.
    ■ Step 5 - The dried castings are hand-painted with high-quality acrylic pigments. This is where I spend most of my time.
    ■ Step 6 - Each casting is beautifully mounted for display.

    ☙ What are my matting and framing options? ❧
    ● Mat Options. This work of art is mounted for display on acid-free mat board with a top mat and a liner mat. A hidden foam spacer is between the mats and back to create depth for the artwork. The color options are listed top to bottom. For example, Black-Gold-Maroon would be a black top mat, a gold liner mat, and the bottom mat maroon. Regardless of frame choice, you will receive mats.

    ● No Frame Option. You may choose to receive this work without a frame. You will still get the mats and it will be ready to frame but can not be hung until it is framed. You will need a canvas depth frame to frame this on your own. Framing can be costly and difficult for thicker items like this. I only recommend this option if you are familiar with what framing entails.

    ● Framed Option. You may choose to have your item framed. We frame in high-quality black anodized aluminum frames with glass. This no-hassle option is ready to hang. I strongly recommend this option for items that are intended as gifts.

    ☙ About the Artist ❧
    -Kevin Dyer. Céad Míle Fáilte!! That means 100,000 welcomes in Irish. I am a self-taught artist who has been blessed with a full-time art career dating back to the 1970s. I am originally from the west coast but have lived in Georgia since the ’70s. I have experimented with almost every medium you can think of but found my place in making cast paper in the early ‘90s. I love almost every culture of antiquity but found my roots in Celtic style art. I find most of my inspiration today from Celtic culture, nature, and fantasy. I spend most of my days at home making art. My daughter, Logan, works with me full time, and every day I pass more and more of the skills I have learned down to her.
