METAL ART DESIGNS

~SOAPSTONE SKETCH ON WORK TABLE~


THIS ABOVE PICTURE IS A COMMON PRACTICE IN METAL ART DESIGNS. SOAPSTONE SKETCHES CREATED ON WORK TABLES ARE NOT AS SHARP AND DETAILED AS PLANNED DRAWINGS, BUT ARE GREAT FOR CAPTURING AN INTERESTING IDEA.

THE ABOVE MENTIONED SOAPSTONE DRAWING WAS A GREAT REFERENCE FOR A MOORISH STYLE SCONCE(BOTTOM IMAGE)I CREATED A FEW YEARS AGO. I HAVE ALWAYS ADMIRED THE METAL ART OF THAT SPECIFIC CULTURE. YOU MIGHT BE FAMILIAR WITH THERE INTRICATE TILE WORK, WITH BOLD ORNAMENTAL SHAPES.

DETAILS...CREATED FROM BRASS AND COPPER, THIS DECORATIVE CANDLE SCONCE HAS A VERY UNIQUE AND DELICATE STYLE TO IT. ALMOST A PHOENIX LIKE STRUCTURE WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT CLOSELY. BRASS AND COPPER MATERIALS CAN DO A GOOD JOB OF HIGHLIGHTING DARK AREAS AND SPACES ON WALLS, THIS SCONCE WOULD PROBABLY BLEND WELL IN A STUDY NEXT TO SOME OLD BOOKCASES, OR MAYBE IN AN INDOOR GARDEN SETTING CENTERED ON THE WALL BETWEEN SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE PLANTS.
