This valance is art for your window. I named it Earth and Ocean because
its elements are clay, rock and driftwood found by me at the sea!

Do you have a favorite shop in Etsy? I do....morphingmolecules. Russ makes really
unusual super high quality ceramics. That is why I commissioned some 7inch x 2inch
carbon pieces, and geometric copper matte pieces to make this raku
window valance.

The black carbon is a very rich contrast to the copper matte raku and the carbon
black has wonderful smokey patterns. The range of colors in the copper
matte are copper/rust/cobalt blue/velvet magenta/ blue/....,all the colors are created by
flames randomly hitting the surface of the pieces during the Raku process.

This valance is an organic collage featuring those raku pieces! I gathered
driftwood from my local beach, and applied pearlized minerals to them to
mimic the metal tones of the raku. I soldered flat black river rocks and
gave the solder a copper patina. The black rocks hang from the driftwood pieces.

The bead strands are composed of ceramic and wood beads.

The valance is somewhat adjustable. It is shown on a 30 inch window, but by spacing
the pieces slightly further apart, it would fit a 32 inch window very nicely.

The valance rod is not included, but the hand made valance rings are.

This is what people are saying about my valances:

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I have been looking for some time for something different over my small kitchen window. When I spotted this I knew it was the one! It is all of my colors in my kitchen. Patty was very quick in packaging it and getting it to me in a really short time. The packaging was very well done. Patty, you are a true artist and thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!

I love the valances. They are quite the conversation pieces! I will send pics soon!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!! These are the most beautiful window treatments I have ever seen. I can hardly wait to get them placed on my windows. Thank you so much Mariann
