Heurich House Boudoir Ceiling (2016) – Copper
The basis for this work is a portion of the ceiling stencil in the second floor boudoir of the Heurich House Museum, located in Washington, DC.
Working from a photo provided by the museum, I recreated the pattern digitally and transferred it onto a 6” x 6” sheet of copper. It was then etched, the surface deliberately distressed in the process. A patina was applied to the metal to emphasize this distressed texture and to give it the appearance of age.
