SHOWCASE 5 - Artique Masks

These masks are full-face wall decoration masks which I have carefully handcrafted. Each and every embellishment is meticulously selected and put in place to create a unique piece of
MASK WALL-ART.

I don't draft up designs on paper, or even gather together all the bits and pieces before I begin. I just have a vision in my head (often concocted in the middle of the night!) and I set to work in my studio.

However, if you commission an Artique Mask from me, you can have as much input into the colours, design, trims and embellishments as you wish, so you have a clear idea of what it will look like.
Or ... you can give me some colour tones and an overall look/feel, and then give me free rein to create a surprise for you.

The masks are inspired by traditional Venetian full-face mask designs and techniques, but I add my own flavour and creativity and build the personality of the mask.

These masks incorporate real vintage items such as fabric, jewels etc, special beads, trimmings and jewellery items that I pick up on my travels, flowers, leaves, and various exotic embellishments ... my studio is full of special treasures to use.

These are a stunning piece of art for any room. They are totally unique and hand-decorated. Some are on ceramic bases that I have handmade or imported. I exhibit these masks as pieces of art, hence my term "Artique" for this style.

If you would like an Artique mask created for you or a friend please contact me to discuss. I can work with any theme you like, and can incorporate any special pieces of old jewellery or mementos into the mask

PRICES range between $150 to $200+ depending on design and materials used. 

Here is a selection of masks I have created over the years - for Wearable Arts, for clients, for charity auctions, for friends ...all manner of colours, styles, themes.  These masks can also be worn.
