New Work by Stuart Loten

Rachel K DeLong Gallery welcomes new artist Stuart Loten from Montville Maine. "My lamps are entirely handcrafted, featuring painted silk shades. The silk for these shades is stretched on a frame and is dye painted with bamboo calligraphy brushes. The bases are made from straight stock steel that is bent, welded and oxidized in a chemical bath to produce rich chocolate brown patinas and is given a final protective acrylic clear coat."
