are black and white images on glass that were made famous by Edward
Sheriff Curtis before 1925. Curtis made them on sensitized glass plates
and coated the back with banana oil and bronzing solution. They are
some of his most sought after images usually costing way into the thousands
Curtis’s comment about “Cur-tones”
as he called them was as follows……..
“The ordinary print, however good, lacks depth and transparency, or more strictly
speaking, translucency. We all know how beautiful are the stones and pebbles in the
brook of the forest where the water absorbs the blue of the sky
and green of the foliage, yet when we take the same iridescent pebbles
from the water and dry them they are dull and lifeless, so it is with
the orthodox photographic print, but in the [goldtone] all the transparency
is retained and they are as full of life and sparkle as an opal.”
make “Goldtone prints” by spreading liquid emulsion on glass and
printing selected images in the sizes of 4x5”, 8x10” and
11x14”(See image PH-16). Each image is then backed with gold metal
leafing and coated with a varnish to protect the image and the leafing
along with being framed which is essential to protect the delicate glass
image. There are many technical difficulties involved when making these
prints but I agree with Curtis’s assessment of these spectacular
images. I am proud to now offer these prints to the public.
*All Goldtones prints are made on glass plates backed with gold metal leaf.
*All images in each size are released in an extremely limited edition. Each image is given an edition number (2/5, etc)
*All images are archivally processed similar to other Black and White prints.
*All images come framed with a certificate of authenticity describing the image making process

artist on the back (verso) and on the COA.

Printing Out Paper (POP) prints
(Gold prints on art paper)
Also my painting continues…..
I have found that without knowing it I have a theme that runs through most of my work. I’ve found that as I continue my search for pathways to higher consciousness one usually sees a window, door, or “pathway” to this other dimension in most of the painted images I produce.
I find it very strange that I did this without even being aware that this is what I was doing!
