Honoring Arma by Alisa Looney Porcelain Enamel (glass) on Hammered Steel
This GRATITUDE piece was made for my mother to honor her creative life and the many ways she has and continues to make our lives beautiful.
I offer a similar approach on a commission basis to pay tribute those you love and appreciate, to acknowledge the difference they have made. Several images will be derived from an interview, which can be supported by photos, documents, objects or other items that represent pivotal or significant moments in the life of your loved one.
The steel sculpture will be hand crafted, first designed in paper, then plasma cut from steel sheet, sanded, hammered and tig welded. Hand painted with glass, it is kiln fired in several layers, using spray, sgraffito and water color techniques resulting in brilliant colors and stories that will never fade.
Several sizes are available in both free standing and wall mounted forms.

This was the first in the “Memory and Gratitude” Series – designed to honor people, their story and their gifts.
The images painted in glass depict muscle and cell memories and meaningful moments from my own history for which I am grateful.
Please inquire if you are inspired to create an heirloom treasure for your family to pass down through the generations.
