This project was contracted by one of the local prisons. It's intended use was hang a metal chit with the engraved name of any staff member who retired from that facility. My design intention was to mimic a cell door with the top and bottom scripted pieces mimicking banners. The interpretation of the piece was intended to create a sense of celebration of an employee being released from the confines of a jail environment.
This piece was made from solid oak, with an oak plywood backing. All of my finishing materials were water based and non toxic.
