To commemorate Remembrance Day, we've got a new set of three aluminum 4" x 6" prints featuring Sachs Covered Bridge in Winter, the imposing artillery at Excelsior Field and the iconic Pennsylvania State Monument under a stormy autumn sky. Each metal print includes a custom handcrafted stand, a signed certificate of authenticity and a suede-microfiber cloth for easy cleaning.

Certificate of AuthenticityEach print includes a signed and dated certificate.

Aluminum prints have greater clarity, contrast and depth than traditional prints, and they are far more durable than paper, acrylic or canvas prints. As long as they're are kept out of direct sunlight, they'll continue to bring joy for generations. You can see each of the images in greater detail below:

The Witness Tree at Devil's Den on a Witness Wood Stand

"The Witness Tree at Devil's Den" on Witness Wood Stand6" x 9" aluminum print on a stand made from pewter and wood from the tree in the picture. This week, I created a single pedestal using some of my rare and precious wood from the witness tree at Devil's Den in Gettysburg. I was gifted a small quantity of this wood several years ago - it was legally obtained, as I feel I should always make clear - and because it is so special, I'm careful to use it in ways that are the least wasteful.

For this reason, I have chosen to keep the "live" natural edge, and I only removed the loose bark and softened the edges with a wire-wheel brush and a flap-wheel sander before varnishing them, waxing them and applying protective silicone feet underneath. The upper and lower tiers are pinned together with brass rod and epoxy, and the lead-free pewter mount holds the 6" x 9" metal print securely in place.

The Reverse Side of the Print & StandThe pewter mount is symmetrical, so you can have the print facing in either direction. For those who don't know, the 'witness tree' is so called because it is believed to have been standing at the time of the Battle of Gettysburg, a living witness to that pivotal moment in America's history. Because there's such a limited quantity of this wood, and each slice is unique in shape and size, this is the first 2-tiered print stand I have made and I am selling it with this specific metal print of the image titled "The Witness Tree at Devil's Den".

This one-of-a-kind set is available on a first come, first served basis to the first person who emails me to claim it: [email protected]

Sized For All The Small Spaces In Your Life The 11 ounce coffee mug is shown for scale only, and it is not included. For anyone who has not experienced metal prints in person, they are not only far more durable than paper or canvas prints, they also have greater clarity, contrast and color depth, in addition to being easier to clean and maintain. Just keep them out of direct sunlight, avoid harsh detergents and these heirlooms will last your family for many generations.

This collectible 6" x 9" aluminum print of The Witness Tree at Devil's Den, together with a unique pewter and "witness wood" pedestal, a signed certificate of authenticity and a suede-microfiber cleaning cloth is priced at $199 + tax & shipping*.

The Pennsylvania Monument in a Different Light

Tealight Vigil PrototypeFeaturing the Pennsylvania Monument at Gettysburg

This aluminum print bears an image of the Pennsylvania state monument at Gettysburg, taken a few years ago during a fast moving summer storm. The sky was as dramatic as any I've seen in all my years of living here, and to my mind it perfectly compliments the iconic monument to the Sons of Pennsylvania, whose blood consecrates this hallowed ground.

The 8" round metal print is held by in place a prototype stand made from solid-surface material, lead-free pewter and brass, and which includes two thick glass tealight holders. I'm happy with the appearance of the prototype, and it is very sturdy with a pleasingly solid tactile quality. Unfortunately, because of the amount of time and material required to make it, I'll be modifying my design moving forward and there will be no others quite like it.

I've decided to sell the prototype stand paired with the Pennsylvania monument metal print, and this collectible set is available to the first person to claim it by email ([email protected]) and then pay for it.

Forever Flowers

I never want to give people flowers. If it's a living plant, the gift comes with the responsibility of watering and caring for it. If the gift is an arrangement of cut flowers, they will soon wither and die... which is hardly the sentiment one seeks to inspire with a gift of flowers!

Our new metal prints are attractive, durable, affordable and above all UNIQUE gifts, which spare the recipient any effort or unpleasantness - and which will continue to bring pleasure for many years to come!

They'll be available soon. Contact me if you just can't wait.

6x9 Aluminum Prints with Stands"Pariah" & "Partisan"6x9 Aluminum Prints with Stands

My wife LOVES Halloween and each year she usually starts decorating for it in August. This typically requires multiple trips to The Spirit Store, Halloween City and other assorted spooky shops, and our best Halloween decorations often find their way into my studio, to be used as photo props.

"Pariah" (left) and "Partisan" (right) are two such images, featuring a resin skull decoration and an eyeball made for film and makeup effects. After editing them, I've made these two images into matched 6" x 9" aluminum prints, each with a stand that has been handcrafted from recycled solid-surface material. Each print also includes a signed certificate of authenticity and a suede-microfiber cleaning cloth.

These collectible metal prints are being offered at a special introductory price which includes free Priority shipping with tracking included*. Order both prints together and you'll save even more!

Have a Safe & Happy Halloween!
