You can find me on FACEBOOK : Belair Design Studios

As an artist, my goal is to create and produce designs that are unique, aesthetically pleasing, and affordable. I have a great passion for classic 19th and early 20th century design and draw my inspiration from the wonderful artists and craftsmen of these bygone eras.

Most of my pieces here on Etsy are made of cast stone. Adding a combination of tint powders to the original mix of concrete and artist plaster, each piece is hand cast in my home studio. Once cured, the sculpture is rubbed with a finishing compound and hand buffed to a soft sheen. The result is a piece that looks and feels like a period bronze at a tiny fraction of the price. Please don't confuse these with mass produced resin (plastic!) sculptures. Periodic application of a dark wax followed by light buffing will maintain this piece's warm patina.

Questions are always welcome. :)
