Pistrucci Artworks is in the middle of sculpting an old tree for a fireplace surround. We are extremely proud of this project and excited to see it finished – more pictures to come of final stages and installation.
Here is a before photo of the fireplace – We are really excited about the transformation. Now that the sculpting is finished we are molding, drying, glazing and firing. We will be posting in the next couple of weeks photos of our glaze tests. The homeowners are interested in a grey charcoal color to match the color scheme of the interior walls. I am thinking a really nice silver lustre over the charcoal might add a luxurious effect but just might be to much? Glaze tests will definitely answer this question.
