Hope is the Thing...

Metal Wall Sculpture

Created by Vinnie Sutherland
"Hope is the Thing...," created out of a sheet of pewter, was manually rolled through an etching press several times, layered with petals, seeds, roots, and leaves. Each pass through the press allows for the layering in of the background, comprised of petals and additional textures. After embossing, the pewter is rubbed with black paint and various inks and then preserved with a museum-grade wax. 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.

Each piece is unique and will vary.

This piece requires little care—a light dusting with a soft, dry cloth, if needed.
