Reliefs – unglazed

DSC_0297 (2)

All of the smaller reliefs I have made have been framed and glazed. The glazing is for protection and to keep the relief free from dust. The glass does create a barrier and the reflections from it sometimes interfere with ‘clean’ viewing’. The reflections from the glass also make photographing the reliefs difficult.

So, in the last few days I have unglazed four pieces and taken pictures. These are primarily for putting the work up for sale online. Customers will be able to choose whether buy the reliefs with glazing or without.

The reflections are not overpowering but I think they can distract from the light and shadows in the relief.
