Story Behind the Art
My name is J. Blas. From the time I was small I have enjoyed arts and crafts. When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop. I later went to work in other studios as well as in a ceramics museum, where I learned everything from how to look for clay to crafting techniques. After learning about ceramics, I changed directions and began to work in wrought iron and blown glass. I started to experiment with sheets of iron of different weights to give my works more movement.

This is a beautiful piece of art for outdoors or indoors. The only reason I gave it a '4' for appearance is it has a slight intimidating or "angry" look about the eyes so that I placed it in the back yard as opposed to my front wall next to the door. I wanted more of a happy or pleasant Sun plaque and so looking for something else. Otherwise this is a great buy.
This item took a very long time to be shipped. The piece is very well made but looked so much better online than in person. The sun and rays were very very dull in color, I expected them to be really shiny and radiant colors of bronze and golds. The item was also a little smaller than I thought it would be. I wanted this piece for indoors but after receiving it I think it will look great outdoors under our covered porch.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It looked so radiant on the screen, mine arrived being very dull colors. I expected much more glistening bronze and gold colors.
How is the quality of the product? The product is well made.
This is a very interesting piece of art, the way the sun looks like it is 'blowing'. I was not so happy about the finish, tho, so I took some metallic paint and dabbed over some of the redness of it. I turned it coppery and that was so much better than original for my decorating needs. This is a beautiful piece, and quite interesting to look at. I have been to mexico several times and have not seen anything like this before; I must say, too, it is much easier to order from Overstock. It came well-packaged with no damage, too. Enjoy!
In theory, I love what Novica does; I am not a fan of mass-produced products like those for sale in hobby shops and imported home decor stores. While I understand each piece is supposedly "one of a kind", I found the lack of finishing and attention to detail troubling. I work in a manufacturing setting, and know it is pretty simple to deburr and/or sand the edges of metal (even using a rasp - much less a mechanical grinder). This piece had many places where the artist was just plain lazy and did not clean up cuts made in the metal or the edges very well. It's always a hassle to send things back, so I kept it. Also, sanding it now will destroy the finish, so I am displaying it outside on a fence where you will not see the rough edges easily, and it works well in my garden setting. The metal is pretty thin and this would not hold up to much handling or strong wind. I wouldn't recommend this particular artist and will not purchase their pieces again.
I originally wanted this on the side of my house (deck side) but I can't get myself to put a nail in my siding. And so it is nicely displayed on the front of my deck next to the stairs as you enter. I love it!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
