  2. Looks almost as it the clay (or whatever material) is still wet! Love the details.

  5. I enjoy looking at this..I see graceful flowers standing tall above the leaves. The rosettes always make me smile..don't leave a surface bare!

  6. Love this capital! When I was stripping similar ones in my front hall, I discovered they were made of Plaster of Paris and so I had to faux paint them to match the English Oak I found on the columns. Did a damn good job of it too!

    Great photo Daryl.

  9. Hi, Daryl. You wrote to ask me the style. I would say it's Corinthian, though there are some Ionic curls up there!

  10. Love it. The texture, the shapes, there's lots to absorb.
