This is another print by one of my favorite artists, Mr. Ciro Marchetti. The rich colors and exquisite detail in this image gave me many options for my frame. The underlying base is mild steel which I cut, bent, welded and ground and burnished. I then bent sheet copper to lay over portions of the steel. These pieces I hand riveted into place with rivets I made from brass rod. I brought the “Tight Rope” out from the image, connecting it to a platform, on the right side, where a small Ballerina figure waits for her partner to complete her act.
I’m very pleased with how this one turned out, but the finished frame has become quite heavy, requiring two people to lift it into place on the wall.
