In reaction to forms in Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass designs, I created a large series of sketches for what I call "canted square" wallpieces. So far, of the wallpieces I have completed from those sketches, this one stands out as my favorite, but it has not been shown all that often. Whenever the piece comes out of its box for a show, its colors surprise me again, as the piece in person is much more exciting than in its photographs, gentle though they are, while the dynamic shape makes me want to see the piece more, and maybe make more in its series.
Like most of my wallpieces, this one can be mounted in any orientation; this design can be mounted either horizontally or vertically, and can also work if it is aligned to the skewed angles. The choice is up to you.
The wallpiece is built from many thin-walled brass boxes folded from sheet, brazed at their corners, and patinaed with traditional sculptural patinas while heating the metal with a torch. The grey patina is an experimental combination of patinas, based on one we call the Mystery Patina, because we found it in a container which we hadn't marked. The results we have gotten over the years with the Mystery Patina make us wish we knew what it was.
The piece only weighs about 17 pounds and can be hung on any wall. You can use ordinary drywall anchors for normal walls. I can also provide special clips which make for a more secure installation.
