Item is for sale.

Framed stoneware tile frieze in oiled bronze and acid patina finish.

Quarter sawn White Oak Easel Frame. Brass screw details.

Frame is faceted and sits on a foot that acts like an easel. Great shelf sitter. In this case a fireplace mantle.

All my tiles start as mahogany relief woodcarvings,then … made into plaster molds, pressed stoneware clay and kiln fired to 2375

Bronze acid patina finish is produced similar to “David Marks” DIY techniques . I use a combination of materials but a good place to start is http://www.sculptnouveau.com.

First time ever using bendable plywood. Found it on the net at Van Dykes Restorers.

Hey Andy
Thanks for the job hunting encouragement. Just getting started. Not many jobs to choose from in Ohio .
Unemployment rate is much higher then the national average. I have had some good luck,... couple networking type interviews, but not sure where it will go.

Regards
DAN

Thanks everyone for the comments on my project posting.
