I'll let the my words speak about my process.
After a fitting in the studio, we installed the white marble sink in the powder room. It has a removable panel for plumbing access.
The walls get tile all around
Congratulation Steve Moal on a very cool creation for Wayne Carini. I feel fortunate for having done the walnut steering wheel with and oil and wax finish.
Here's the completed translucent resin table from earlier blog posts. It reminds me of the ocean, which is fortunate because it's going in a home in Hawaii.
After cutting the raw block to a rectangular section that will fit the bollection profile that I'm wishing to create, I start by making a series of stepcuts that are rough at first, then progressively more refined to the finished shape.
The polished black marble leg with plinth blocks
My client wanted me to reproduce an historical fireplace surround using a black marble with white veins, pietra dura veneer around the firebox opening using white marble and brass, and an 18th cent. style fire basket in brass and steel.
Working together with an architect in Milwaukee Wisconsin, I created this hand carved wooden drop finial, (photo is inverted), for an historic restoration of a wooden porch that was removed for rot in the 1920s, but is back in full glory now. I have considerable experience with restoration of cathedral and ecclesiastical restoration, and commercial and high end residential restoration. The acanthus type is unique to this home and my knowledge. Seems to be more shamrock than acanthus :)
Careful planning must be a part of a successful end product. The biggest problem with casting resin is the heat build up. I constructed a mold for a 3" thick top by building a flowing water bath around it. This will help me cool it down and control the heat which can cause cracking and warping. I also am adding an extruded panel of polycarbonite to gain stability. Same with the pour for the legs that will support the top.
