DAVID DELAMARE PRODUCTS
Wendy, David’s widow, is currently assessing her collection of paintings and drawings to determine which will be sold, which donated to museums, and which kept for sentimental reasons. As a result, she has temporarily marked some paintings “sold” that really aren’t. If you see a painting and want to know if it is available, feel free to ask. If she’s not yet sure about it, she can put you on a waiting list and contact you if she decides to sell it.
Our giclée prints are produced using eight archival Ultrachrome inks for outstanding detail and color accuracy. (We are consistently astonished at how closely these prints resemble the original artwork.) The special archival inks are also designed for longevity. Your giclée should last many decades without perceptible color shifts, if displayed in normal indoor light conditions. All prints arrive flat on an acid-free-barrier foam board and are accompanied by framing recommendations.
Because giclées are custom-made to order, they are not returnable. But you may rest assured that they will be very carefully packed by the most conscientious monkeys on our staff. (In the unlikely event that one arrives damaged, email us a photo and save your packaging so we can file an insurance claim with UPS and send a replacement.)
Though more expensive than paper giclées, canvas giclées are less expensive to frame (since they don't require dry mounting or glass). All canvases have black edges and are stretched onto 1/2" wooden bars designed to fit nicely into frames. (They arrive with black backing and wire already attached so that, until they are framed, you can hang them on the wall.) If you don't plan to add a frame, we recommend a deeper (one inch) bar for a more finished look. Just send an additional $25 via our payments page if you'd like this option. Canvas prints are custom-made and, therefore, not returnable. But we will pack yours well and send it fully insured with adult signature required.
Our posters are all printed on a heavy acid-free paper. The arrive flat on cardboard or mat board in an archival display bag. Please note that any cardboard backing used is for safety during shipping and is not acid-free. We recommend framing with an acid-free backing material.
PORCELAIN LITHOPHANE LIGHTS
Our beautiful porcelain lights (found in Gallery #6) are made by the wonderful team at The Porcelain Garden. They write: ""Lithophanes were conceived in 1827, when it was discovered that a remarkable three dimensional image could be produced by shining light through a carving of varied thicknesses in porcelain. These beautiful transparencies are achieved by first carving the image into beeswax. The translucency of the wax allows the artist to see the result of his labor as he works. A plaster casting is taken from this masterwork, then a fine porcelain paste is pressed into this mold. After drying, the panels are kiln fired to 2300 degrees, to achieve their extreme density and amazing translucency. Over half do not survive this process; a testimony to the difficulty of this technique.We are dedicated to the preservation and continuation of this most unusual art form."
