This is an 18x22" panel I just finished, and I started another the other day.

Here is another recent work that I finished, in red clay;

You have captured quite well the final phase of art deco. I can remember as a little kid when art deco was called modern. This was right after the war. Nothing had been built in the US since the 1930's except war materials and airplane factories. I still love to go to New York to visit the great art deco buildings: Chrysler, Empire State, Rockefeller Center, and the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria. All of those, with the exception of Rockefeller Center, were designed in the late 1920's, before the age of the "common man". For a short while Rockefeller Center had a mural by Rivera with Lenin in it, but I guess even then people were beginning to suspect the mass murder Lenin had initiated. The mural was destroyed. I go up to Mexico City quite often, and when I do I usually drop in to the Palacio de Bellas Artes to see Rivera's murals there.

I have begin casting this panel now, this one is for a client who plans an Art Deco bedroom.
The panel was cast today and will take a few days to dry out, then it will get the bright gold finish which I think will look best.
The color of the panel as shown is with special base tint added to the casting material so that the color is completely through the entire panel.
Using a base color like this under the gold (or another color under one of my other finishes) serves two purposes, one is it tends to deepen the final finish color, the other is, should the unforseen accident occur someday of a chip on a corner, or scratch, with the substrait color being close to the finishes' color, the damage won't stand out like a sore thumb as it otherwise could.
