Raven Flight The outside mat and frame dimensions are 8 x 16
A black raven soaring in flight.
In Celtic and Norse mythology the Raven appears in many legends. Known as a source of power and as an omen of death, they move between worlds of the living and the dead as messengers between the two.
In Norse tales Huginn and Muninn perch on his shoulders of Odin when they are not out gathering information for him.
Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me 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 that 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 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 edge or new pigments. I send about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.
