|Class Details and Benefits:|
This cut corner tray has been one of Jo Sonja's favorite pieces for decades. Originally made from steel and tin but we have had this tray beautifully reproduced in alder and baltic birch. All of the moldings are solid alder and the floor of the tray is birch ply. You can see in the photos that it is expertly mitered and constructed. The tray is wonderfully lightweight at just 10 ounces and yet is a full 17" long by 11" wide. The exact dimensions of the original tin.
This is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional art form. The history of our art form has many beautiful design styles and I love the charm and simplicity of tin pieces with early American tin decoration. Taking that example and bringing to it new coloration and stylized forms always provides hours of creative painting joy!
