One of a Kind ART WORK is now available on A Rustic Garden's web site. Midwestern artist Lori Daniels with Antique Picker Steve White have combined their eclectic tastes to create wonderful one of a kind art. Each piece is compiled of vintage finds that add dimension for interest but focusing on color.
Lori states "Color is EVERYTHING!" When looking at her work many attributes are evident - size - variety - objects of antiquity - glazed surface but what stands out on each and every piece is the combination of COLOR! Some colors blend and other contrast. Each ready to become a focal point in your decorating scheme. Lori's enthusiasm is evident when she says "I still want to know what certain colors taste like and a great love of nature runs through all my creations. I eat, breathe and smell color."
Customers often find that when they make the purchase and find that perfect spot in their home they can not stop at one purchase. As lovely as they are on A Rustic Garden's site they are much more beautiful in person.
Thirty years of collecting antique ceiling tin has afforded Lori and Steve the opportunity of turning antique architectural salvage into a new and different art form for future generations.
From Lori "Each piece created is truly a one of a kind along with it's history and building location. As I started painting and selling my tin creations, the demand of more unusual ceiling tin art in flat and collage designs far surpassed my ability to produce it. A respect and love of art and antiques of the past fuels my goal of preserving our unique vintage finds for more art lovers to come."
Lori and Steve transform Vintage Finds and Antique Tin Ceiling Tiles into Glazed works of art. You would think they were Century old Ceramic tiles. They are keeping this technique a secret though! You needn't ask... they are not sharing their process with anyone.
