The Hierophant
framed metal repoussé
7" x 9" ready to hang

"I am a Melbourne-based full time artist, specializing in metalworking and painting. Using a metal tooling technique known as repoussé, I emboss each piece by hand in my studio. After pressing the design into the pewter sheet, the surface is etched, bumped, scratched, marked, doused with a dark patinating solution and then polished back to give it a tarnished, aged look, leaving the metal surface stained with tones of blacks, browns, blues, golds and silvers – because this process is unpredictable, every piece is completely unique. The piece is then finished with gems, glass paint, enamels, iridescent pigments and sometimes patterned origami papers or vintage engraving imagery. Each wall piece is sealed with a layer of crystalline wax to protect the surface, mounted on mdf panel and framed up ready to hang."
