Linda Thorson DesignBNW Spring Show 2018/ Other
Inspired by the historic decorative arts, nature, and travel, I create cast designs for the home and garden in a proprietary concrete mix. From my original patterns in mixed-media I make silicone mold which can pick up the finest detail and deep undercuts. Each piece is cast with integral color, then trimmed and repaired of imperfections. A layering process of pigments follows, with a final sealing and burnishing to give the pieces rich color and finish. In addition to my highly-detailed pieces, I make a line of hand-built bowls which is a more organic process that allows me to include art glass elements.
