These are in-progress photos as the project now moves to the textile phase, where all the woodwork is hidden by bespoke yellow wool damask, woven and dyed to correspond with written house accounts from the period. (We know it was a suspended cornice, there are two “eyes” integral to the ceiling!) Once everything is complete, I’ll properly organize and caption the photos.

This 6′ roundel was acquired from a ball room of a on old, closed Art Deco hotel in the midwest. The image is a combination of paint, gilding, lusterfarben, applied mother of pearl and mica. It was very dirty, overpainted and degraded. This was first conserved and then the frame was custom made, decorated with silver and aluminum leaf.
A new frame of my design for this family portrait.
