Ezra | 7 x 29"
Ezra was born through an arduous pursuit. Philip's desire was to create a piece designed to give the viewer a feeling familiar with experiencing Gothic cathedrals (without looking like a gothic cathedral). Regardless of Creed, the vast intricacy of an old cathedral stirs something within the human spirit. Anyone familiar with this understands the positive peculiarity. While impossible to bring that FULL feeling into a customer's home, he wanted to make a physical reminder for those who appreciate this feeling. Ezra is a tribute of sorts to an experience so difficult to articulate.

Tour of Studio + How its made: Youtube Link
Every piece of artwork is made in my little studio here in Southern NJ. The wooden panels are constructed from various plywoods, which means that each one turns out slightly different depending on the grain and how the wood accepts the stain. Most commonly, the wooden pieces are created from Mahogany, Red Oak, and White Birch. The different layers are sometimes stained different colors in order to bring out the design's depth. It also adds more aesthetic texture to an already lively appearance. Note, the appearance will change throughout the day depending on the light.
