Metal Wall Sculpture
Created by Vinnie Sutherland
"Cathedral", created out of a sheet of pewter, was manually rolled through an etching press several times, layered with petals, seeds, roots and grasses. Each pass through the press allows for the layering in of the background, comprised of petals, and additional textures. After being embossed, the pewter is rubbed with black paint, and various inks, and preserved with a museum grade wax. Torch-fired enameled copper "eggs" play a central role in the composition. The completed work is mounted upon a black wood frame, 1.5" in depth and is ready to hang. This piece requires little care, perhaps a light dusting with a soft, dry cloth, if needed. The natural materials used in this process do break down over time, and other comparable materials substituted. Your piece may vary in appearance from the piece pictured. Every effort will be given to creating a piece as similar to the piece shown as possible.
