ArtStruct Art Doors by Yorgen Quent Kvinsland

So in the past few months I have been working on some ceramic heads to be installed in a custom door made by my old college classmate Yorgen Quent Kvinsland. The name of his company is ArtStruct and you should deffinately check out his website here. Here is what he has to say there about the doors:

"A front door is a focal point of a dwelling or building – it sets the mood for the inhabitant or visitor. Yorgen Quent Kvinsland founded ArtStruct on the belief that a front door is an often underutilized blank canvas for creative expression and personal enrichment. A front door should express the owner’s personality and individualism, create a lasting impression, and “set the mood” for the entire building. "

"The identifying signature of an ArtStruct art door is the wooden end-grain grid pattern constant throughout. Also unique to ArtStruct art doors is that sections of the grid can be replaced with original artwork, either from the ArtStruct Collection or introduced by the client. ArtStruct art doors combine fine craftsmanship with artistic expression. They are one-of-a-kind works, crafted from permanent, sustainable, and recycled materials."

So he asked me to make some ceramic panels with heads on them to set in with the woodwork. It took me a good amount of time to get them all done due to super busy schedule but I finally got them all done.
Here is one of the best of the head panels.
