How I Create my Unique Abstract Canvas Artwork

I love to experiment and I love to see the world through a different perspective....so one day when I was taking photographs of some of my ceramic organic sculpture I noticed that the close-up shots were incredibly interesting. More specifically they were abstract and textured and I thought that the images would look really great on a wall.

Creating Highly Versatile Abstract Canvas Artwork

Once I realized that I could have the images made into canvas prints, I began to experiment with shapes. It turned out that I could crop the images so that they could be either rectangles or squares. I also realized that I could take two different shots of the larger pieces and make distinct yet similar square images that make fantastic sets.

Above are samples of how my abstract canvas artwork can be versatilely displayed. Squares canvas prints can be made up to 56'' x 56'' making it possible them to make a statement even in a large room. They can also be made in smaller sizes so that they can be hung in sets and look proportional to the room. Rectangular canvas prints can be made up to 40'' x 65'' to bring texture to large blank walls. They can also be made in medium and small sizes to look great in kitchens, small apartments, and nooks.

Creating Abstract Framed Abstract Wall Art

Upon further investigation, I also realized that I could have my close-up photographs printed and framed. They have a different feel than the canvas prints. Instead of dominating the wall with texture they have a almost polished feeling. In fact, the black frames and white mattes compliment the furniture in the rooms above. They are available up to 32.5'' x 32.5 in the square size and 40.5'' x 32.5'' in the rectangular size.

How Exactly Do I Make my Abstract Prints?

Well,...I start out by making either a ceramic sculpture or in some cases flat ceramic slabs. I then fire them in my kiln to bisque temperature (1828 F). Next I glaze them using multiple glazes in a variety of patterns. For the example above, I glazed a ceramic slab using at least 6 different glazes and an iron oxide solution using an eye dropper as the applicator. I applied all of the glazes in a line so that they would run into each other but keep a distinct line of their own color. I then fired it again to 2167 F. The first picture the left above shows me pulling the final slab out of the kiln. 

Next I took a close-up photograph of the glazed slab using a high resolution camera, taking several images to make sure that I got the right angle and lighting. I then chose the best photograph and digitally enhanced it using photoshop and cropped it as needed. I then uploaded the final images to my print vendor where they are permanently stored and ready to meet your interior design needs...
