Bas-Reliefs

In additions to their merits as stand alone works of art, bas-reliefs are an excellent means to provide personality and a lasting memory of place to an architectural setting. I was fortunate to grow up in Chicago which has a rich tradition of architectural ornamentation utilizing bas-relief. My aesthetic values were formed in childhood by absorbing the beauty and care put into these patterns in the environment. Such craftsmanship is a grace for children of the present and future.
