How my Modern Wall Art is Unique

My canvas wrapped prints are a completely new take on modern wall art. They are close-up photographs of the complex glazes that I use on my modern sculptures. The photos are then printed on canvas and stretched around a wooden frame. They resemble abstract paintings but have a completely different story…one that is unique and that makes a great conversation starter.

Let me show you...

So the piece Wall slab that you see here. Well, I made these slabs as experiments when I was just really getting into hand-building. I first took sand and ground it into the rolled clay slab...and then I put it through the roller again. After I had cut them into rectangles, I fired them to bisque temperature. I then put almost 10 glazes in abstract patterns on the slab and put it in the kiln again. I was SO happy with what came out....but the problem with them is that they're heavy....so about a year ago I was looking at them and thinking how great they would look blown up on the wall and poof the idea for my abstract canvas wrapped prints. You can see below the four prints I made from these slabs by taking photographs of the glaze patterns at different angles. I'm so happy with how they captured all of the contract and even the cracks that give these slabs so much character.

Another of my favorite examples is the close-up photo I took of this gold, green, and blue modern sculpture. It was a real learning experience shooting this sculpture because I couldn't quite get the shadow from the curvature of the sculpture out of the frame, but after I looked at the photo for a while I realized that like most imperfections it was what made the photo look so interesting. Let me know what you think.
