Mold Making at Gracie Mansion
involved making a silicone mold of an ormolu ornament from a Federal-period table by Charles-Honore Lannuier. I was hired by Leigh Keno, representing a client whose estate sale included a table of the same period and design. The client's piece, however, was missing the ormolu ornament on the front of the table. Setting up shop on the wrap around porch, I was able to provide a mold from which a replacement casting could be made.

standing under the Architrave of King Khafre, which I painted for the exhibition Egyptian Art in the Age of the Pyramids. The original stone, buried deep underground, is one of the foundation stones of a pyramid, and could not be removed to be exhibited. The carving, a cartouche of King Khafre, not visible from inside the pyramid, was discovered only when archeologists explored a robber's tunnel running alongside the structure. The stone, from a period older than the structure it supports, had been recycled for the construction - with the cartouche turned to the outside. This epoxy replica simulates the original stone's red granite surface.
