first two photos are Framed four inch Grueby tiles

First photo is Bubinga frame with qtr sawn oak lattice work design

Second photo is frame and lattice work made from quartersawn white oak.

Lattice work is inspired from a ca 1910 Weiner Werkstatte logo.

Frame design is my original work, based on a previous project posting of a Mission Sconce.

Finish on both frames is alcohol anilyne dark golden dye and a minwax mahogany oil stain, darkened with a little ebony oil stain. Splash of Japanese dryer. Seedlac shellac French polish and dark paste wax.

Third photo is a 4 tile frieze with framed in a jugendstil werstatte inspired frame of my design. Quartersawn white oak. Same finish as above. Tiles are a variations of previous postings

Haunted Forest
Clay is different on each tile, which is the reason the tile lengths vary … different shrink rates. Finish is antique bronze finish as discussed in my blogs.

Hi Dan,

I admire your work. It has a jugendstil/Nouveau/Mackintosh flavor with your own flair. Keep us posted!

The lattice work is more gilt for an already wonderful lily. More Walters magic.

Dan;

I’m beginning to think you lay awake at night thinking up new frame and tile styles.

Again, these are quite beautiful, and very nicely executed!

Lee

Sorry fellas … I’m not Obama, I’m too old. He must be my alter ego, or should I say …. ?
