TWO NEW ITEMS!

Sandblasted Quartz

Medium: Mixed Media

Artist Cindy Peterson

These wood bases were carved out to driftwood gathered at the Payette River. There were cleaned, cut, carved sanded, planed, slots cut for glass. There was more carving than Cindy expected but it had to be done to get it right.

Once slots were cut they had to be refined with final carving, ground, and sanded, Assembled with Pine cones, Pine needles, and reeds. Plus a special touch of a real dried butterfly and dragonfly.

They tell a narrative story with each page adding a layer of information and interest to the overall composition. Truly a one of a kind art piece of mixed mediums.

They are easily assembled and un-assembled for easy cleaning.

ARTWORK IDEAS

I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR CUSTOM PROJECTS.

 

  • See something you like? If you see a specific piece of artwork that’s not for sale, you can commission me to create one for you.

  • Woodburning Projects: You can give me a photo of an image and I can enlarge it, minimize it, or chop the image with a sketch and burn it on any wood surface.
  • Sandblasting Projects: Let me know what glass you want to buy (or already have) and what images you want to be engraved.

  • Have a different idea in mind? Bring them to me and see if I can make it happen!

Glass Design Ideas

99% of the glass Cindy’s uses is recycled glass rescued from ending up in the city landfill. I give the glass new lives and, hopefully, homes to live in.

Each piece of glass is chosen for its weight, quality, color, and uniqueness of shape. I sketch out designs, hand cut the images on the glass or ceramic surfaces, and blast them in my Sand Blaster. Each piece is signed by the artist by hand engraved signature. Glass or ceramic pieces can be personalized as gifts for someone special.

Customers can bring their glass from home to have Cindy blast designs on them. They can purchase Cindy’s glass in Studio or online to have it blasted. They could purchase it from another source and bring it to the Studio for blasting. Can sandblast ceramic objects they reveal on first layer the contrast between the glazed and un-glazed surfaces, and on a longer blast they reveal the color of the fired clay beneath.

New Ideas on Framing Batiks

Framing any artwork can be expensive and intimidating. First thing they ask is what frame do you want? Then they ask you to pick your matte color. What if you don’t find the matte color you had in mind?

We have the solution: You hire Cindy to CREATE A CUSTOM BACKGROUND FOR YOUR BATIK! The background becomes your new custom matte. She can match any color and mimic any part of your original design. Like the one you see in the zebras drinking water titled Tentative Drink.

Traditionally Batiks are framed in what is called top mounting. Meaning that the Batik fabric rests on top of the matte so the fabric’s rough edges are visible. A problematic issue with this type of mounting is you must use glue or something to attach the fabric to the matte board. These glue marks can quite often be seen through the fabric— not so pretty. Using this new design solution solves that problem.

Cindy can offer this same solution to her customers and she can recommend framers she worked with. She stands ready to help customers after the purchases of Batiks whether it’s framing customarily, treating it like a standard canvas, or trying a beautiful new way to display your artwork.

The framer wraps the fabric around the foam board which is sticky.

She secures it on the back. Framer cuts foam board to size, and she secures background custom Batik to it.

She cuts the unwanted portion of the background back away so the next foam board will stick together. The framer wraps the fabric around the sticky foam board.

She sticks the “Tentative Drink” foam board on the background foam board. She has removed unwanted Batik fabric.

She continues the framing. She sticks the “Tentative Drink” Batik on the second piece of foam board cut nearly the same size as the Batik.

See how the foam board makes the “Tentative Drink” Batik more prominent raised up above the background fabric.

Finished.
