BRAND NEW Hand-Made Mixed Media Lightbox

SIZE: APP. 10.5" X 17" X 4"

This is a wonderful hand-made mixed media light box that is part of a new series of pieces I have been working on. It was part of an exhibition titled, "Sanctum" which was held at Constance Gallery at Graceland University in Iowa.

For the show I hand-built each box from corrugated paperboard and various papers, and then collaged the landscape image I shot to the front of the piece. Next, I covered each piece in several layers of thin vintage cotton fabric. In the back of the box, I installed a lamp socket which holds a 9 watt compact florescent bulb to illuminate the piece. To finish the piece off, I covered the entire work with encaustic wax medium which further enhances its illuminating, almost angelic quality. The images I used are permanent and will not fade over time. I built each piece using high quality materials, and careful construction, so that it will last for many years to come. I have been making illuminated pieces for over 10 years and each work is truly a unique piece that reflects my love for antique photography and illumination.

This piece comes with a 10 ft. lamp cord which plugs into any standard outlet. The bulb can easily be changed from the back, and the work can hang easily upon a single small nail.

The greatest thing about these pieces is they way they change with the light. The illuminating quality of the work can be seen during the day, but it really comes alive in the evening! Because of the low wattage lighting used, the work can be continuously lit day and night with no danger of overheating. This makes it a comforting piece to illuminate any room in your home! This piece is signed, sealed, and ready to hang! One bulb is included.

Please see the listing photos which include an image of the piece hanging in my loft, and a sample image of how the socket and wire are mounted in the back.

Each piece will be carefully packaged and shipped by Priority Mail to assure it arrives at your door safely.
