This piece is gloriously filled with tecture, color and dimension. It is 10" x 10" and is made of eco-etched and hammer textured, copper, bronze and brass with Sterling silver accents. Each of the nine 2" squares features one or more layered flowers and 2 or more dimensional leaves. The flowers are gently bent and cupped as are the leaves. Each flower has Sterling silver granulation balls as their center and each square is adorned with hand formed swirls and smashed Sterling silver granulation. Once all elements were soldered in place and everything was cleaned and sanded smooth, a dark patina was added to show off all of the texture and depth. Then a layer of lacquer was added to protect the luscious, rich, colors of the various metals.Next, each square was hand stitched to a hand quilted background of black linen which was in turn, hand stitched to a stretched canvas that had been painted black. The backside has been nicely finished with a heavy paper and a sawtooth hanger added.
Shipping and handling included in the purchase price.
