Red Scarf

Red Scarf is almost done...

She has been in gestation for quite a while... I found the original image early in 2014. A portrait of a beautiful enigmatic lady !

And I went to work... I wanted, of course, to concentrate on her eye. 

I did my usual graphic work, had the model printed, and started to work in April 2014. 

April 26, 2014.
I usually start with the outside borders. Here I used a beautiful, very hard spotted Green Marble which I knew would contrast nicely with the very reds tones of her veil.

In August 2014, I had added some black granites and began using various shades of red, yellow and orange glasses. 

August 1st, 2014

August 3rd, 2014.

After that, I got very absorbed in various projects and commissions, and spent little time on her until June 2015. 

June 19, 2015

I added quite a few materials, ceramics, porcelains,

Glasses, Van Gogh glasses, most of them brilliantly coloured.

On June 25, tiling was complete !

I set Red Scarf's support on June 26, and flipped her on June 28 with a few friends invited to the event !

June 28, 2015, first vision of Red Scarf !

There are still quite a few hours of cleaning and grouting, but we finally can look her in the eye !

June 28, most of the white glue is still there to be cleaned up !

Red Scarf will receive her steel frame and should be available before the end of August 2015. If you are interested by her, please contact me, preferably by email at I will post additional pictures of her grouted and framed in August.
