Incorporating New Designs to Your Mantelpiece
The fireplace mantel is a prominent space in every home, and is a great opportunity to showcase art. Since I have been weaving, I have done all types of sculptures for homes to bring natural fibers and textures into home décor. The creation of fireplace mantel sculptures adds a unique flair and focal point for any room in your home.
A Dynamic Aesthetic
These fireplace mantel sculptures, are designed to be the focal point of your space, as I often work with clients on commission. I utilize many different weaving techniques and materials, so these pieces are designed with your space in mind. The structural base of these pieces is often a mountain laurel branch, in which many hand-woven baskets are nestled. I color and seal my baskets with encaustic wax, and then I will weave in other harvested materials such as grapevine or mimosa bark.
Incorporating unique shapes and textures into the décor of your home is a wonderful way to complement the natural, more rustic patterns and influences in your home. It will also provide a beautiful focal point for anyone who visits your home, especially if we incorporate lighting into your mantel sculpture!
