New Textures for 2014
There are new textures for the upcoming year, along with the textures further down on this site. As always, these pieces can be made in any configuration (usually) and in other colors - gilded with an array of metal oxides. Feel free to contact me by email for orders and more information firstname.lastname@example.org
***All materials used come from within the United States.
|"Cross Country" Very shimmery teals, aqua, and periwinkle.|
|"Meadows" Gorgeous texture and oxide rich over size switch plate.|
|"Meadows" made in brown, loaded with metal oxides.|
|These are the more usual configurations, but customized pieces not shown here are also available.|
|"Magic Carpet" - this very intricate piece evokes a feeling of something from another time, from a far away place, very long ago. This piece will definitely add a touch of "magic" to any space. (added 7/08/14)|
|(Added 9/21/14) "Rock Garden" This free form slab is about 7" long and I used several texturing methods for a dramatic effect. I also did some layering and blending of the oxides. It`s almost too good to be a switch plate!!|
|And here is "Focus" with a silver clay base gilded with cobalt.|
|(Added 9/21/14) "Retro Rectangles" combines layers of textures and subtle shading of a mixture of metal oxides. Very sharp looking for those who like a neutral or contemporary look.|
|Always one of my favorites is to make the "Texture Collage" pieces. You can see the gilding above the surface and below it as well, creating a look of layering.|
|"Cairo" This texture has the feel of something ancient, but with a modern twist.|
Silver Oxide PiecesThere is something so striking about the contrast of silver oxide gilded over textured black slabs. Not only is there the sharpest contrast between the two, but the silver has a soft shimmery quality to it. These pieces needed their own section.
"Leaves of Natures" with inked-to-blend screws
|"Jambalaya" and "Deco Sphere"|
|Uber cool "Texture Collage" in Combo #3. This was a custom piece.|
*******Combo Switch Plates*******
"Cross Country" so lovely, bold, and colorful.
"Mandala Filigree" is always going to be one of my favorites. It has a timeless appeal, while creating a richly textured piece and a beautiful contrast of blues and teals.
