Terry & Randy Romanin
A stained glass mosaic technique, all hand cut, grouted in and trimmed in copper.We occasionally include sliced agate geode or other objects.We use no patterns, each piece is one of a kind.
I create handcrafted by combining unusual stones with complimentary textures, and metals creating contemporary distinctive jewelry designs. I work in sterling silver, fine silver, 14kgold or 22k gold.
All pieces are original designs hand sculpted in wax then centrifugally cast using the lost wax method in either 14 ct gold sterling silver or jewelers bronze then antiqued , polished to show detail
Fabricated metals and plastics. plastics are carved laminated,sanded,polished and sometimes heat formed. metals include silver,brass,bronze,copper,aluminum and steel. soldered
My jewelry is made with porcelain colored clay, using carved woodblocks for relief, bright underglazes for hand painted designs, metallics for finishes, & requires 3 kiln firings to complete process.
Using techniques of hand fabrication, stone setting, in studio casting, the artist creates distinctive art jewelry constructed of gemstones, sterling silver & colors of karat golds.
Mark Van de Bogart
I hand fabricate my constantly evolving designs using many soldering & polishing operations. I start with USA sheet & wire, SS, 14kt, 18kt white & yellow gold, to enhance precious/semi-precious stones
I hand make each flower out of 18 gauge steel.
Each piece is cut, rolled and bent by hand.
I then weld the pieces together to create the different flowers.
I handcraft my art pieces out of mild steel. I like to incorporate salvaged architectural and natural elements into my art to create pieces that inspire people to look at their world in a new way.
I use cut paper, wood, frames, and glue to create original collages. Source material varies from magazines and books, to my own printed photography, with the occasional three dimensional effect.
Mixed media technique . I work on a aluminum plate that is 1/8" thick. I apply resin, oil paints, acrylics, textures, air brush, metal objects that are welded. Art is floated on metal backing plate.
My work is mixed media on wood panel with a blend of unique proprietary plasters as a foundation. Then I use latex paints, glazes and various clear coats. I create hand-cut stencils for the imagery.
Original hand painted eyewear: sunglasses, reading glasses, bi focal sunglasses. All sunglasses are made to the artists spec. Combination of acrylics are used to create geometric and mosaic designs.
Mirandon's paintings astutely combine refinement and drama to convey emotional forces that are simultaneously serene and explosive.
