Building artifacts

This was one of four carved wooden brackets hanging on the wall at the center....not sure what building they came off of. They were quite large (probably 40-48" in length) and in a natural 'wood' state with no evidence of having been painted before. All together an interesting puzzle.

The Architectural Heritage Center is a place that I have wanted to explore for some time and I was very happy to be given the opportunity on Saturday's sketchcrawl.

These are some 'typical' door and window facades from a Victorian building. Besides the design of these artifacts it was interesting to see them as fragments of buildings within a building. The sheet metal ornaments had very boldly sculpted and quite wimsical too.


  1. Deb, these are really nice! I think you have some architect genes. I especially like the wooden bracket, but also the great angle you got for the metal ornament. Great contrast.

  2. These are all excellent! I like your clean, crisp style.
