Painted Ladies

Acquired By:

The above image is one of the best-known groups of "Painted Ladies" which is the row of Victorian houses at 710–720 Steiner Street, across from Alamo Square park, in San Francisco. 

In order to create these unique, beautiful, and colorful houses, I used materials which are different in shapes and colors to articulate each house yet keeping their characteristic of architecture.  This piece requires detailed work, such as tiny aluminum ceramics used for awnings; and some of the smallest sizes of hematite and glass beads were used to make windows for buildings in the background.
