A graceful, stylized tree, with sinuous , black trunk and curving limbs, stands tall, in "faux painted" wood grain against rich shades of honeyed brown, caramel and cream.
Contemporary but organic; a neutral accent choice for dining, living , hall or bedroom.
The beveled mirror with surround of grain painted wood measures approx. 42" tall X 19.5 wide, approx 1" deep.
As taught by an old master in Stockholm, to produce the wood grain appearance, an under layer of sealing stain or paint is applied, after which a pigment is mixed with a milk-based emulsion and brushed, combed or sponged on. Finally, a varnish is applied to protect the work and impart a commanding sheen.
Dust with soft cloth or to clean just wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a non-wax containing polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid the use of ammonia-based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time.
The finish is durable and resistant to most household spills. However, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential problems. Excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures and high humidity can cause damage to both the finish and the wood itself. Following these simple steps will keep your finished piece looking like new for generations.
Ingela Noren and Daniel Grant are the inheritors of a Scandinavian tradition. The early craftsmen who developed their method of "faux finishing" reproduced exotic stones and wood on furniture and building interiors. Over the centuries, perfect imitation became less important. Craft merged with art, and was revealed through the artist's emotion and hand.
