Description

Celtic Tree of Life
Smaller version of my signature work.

The Tree contains the 7 Celtic life forms, Plant, Insect, Fish, Reptile, Bird, Beast and Man. The lower half represents the potential and code for life that in pasted from generation to generation, while the top half reveals the current manifestation of that life.

This description is on the back of each piece.

The frame dimensions are 12" x 16" and 1" deep.

Larger version of my signature work.

Paper Casting
Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different that the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edge or new pigments. I send about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

This was even more beautiful than I thought it would or could be. I arrived very quickly, packed well and ready to hang. I would highly recommend any of the cast paper items that Kevin makes. This one was so beautiful I ordered a different piece from him! Thank you, Kevin, for sharing your talent and art!

I accidentally ordered the incorrect piece and Robert was responsive and helpful. He let me substitute out my original order for 2 of the same thing (which I REALLY appreciated).
