Treasure found at the Rennfest!

As we walked past this shop, the artwork displayed within caught my eye! We ended up inside, visiting with the artist and debating the possiblities of displaying his work in our home! We had not seen this artist at the Rennfest in our 10 previous years of attendance. He was a feature artist this year. After much discussion, leaving the shop to think about it, and then returning, we made our purchases.
Our purchases were wrapped appropriately in these burlap bags!
We hung them shortly upon returning home. We decided they needed lighting, so that was added the next day!
The artist is Gary Williams from Plano, Texas. His business is named "Shatter'd Visages". The pieces are actually made of recycled paper! He shreds paper and mixes it with water along with bleach and salt to inhibit mold growth. Leaving out several more and complicated steps, the resulting slurry is packed into a mold. This "paper casting" is covered with metallic paints to create the aged patina.
He has a website www.shatterdvisages.com .
Ya'll come back!

    LOVE THE ADDITION...so unique, the lighting was a great idea, adds to the beauty and effect of your new art piceces. Your "one of a kind wall" continues to grow into a real show piece. Bet the curtain was enhanced as well. Congratulations on a job well done.

  5. Wow- those are neat! I love the way the look with the light casting a shadow on them!
