So, here are the results. Both pieces are highly textural and very primitive in finish, with lots of lumps and bumps from the many, many layers of stuff I used to create them. It was a bit of a challenge working on something bevelled and not flat. They are both quite dark pieces, not just in color but in feel. Kinda gothic in some ways. I used all kinds of recycled materials to make them and it took the better part of six months to finally get them to the point where I am happy enough with them to let them go.
Each has a wire hanger on the back. Because of the bevelled shape of these plates, they are about a half inch or more deep.
Although they don't show up well in the scans, the little blocks on the pieces are vintage dictionary definitions of "virtue" and "soar."
