THE CLASSICA CAMEO

Custom Portrait Sculpture

The Classica Cameo
The Classica Cameo
Individual
on Curly Maple Wood
An intimate and detailed portrait made entirely by hand to your liking and likeness. We sculpt each original cameo into clay and cast the portrait in plaster, sealing to a matte sheen. We mount them onto a base of dazzlingly figured curly maple wood—which we carefully select, dye, and finish by hand to a gloss finish. Plaster frame and cameo compliment the rich warm curly maple wood to create a uniquely contemporary take on traditional portrait sculpture. We aim to deliver a personal treasure or milestone gift that becomes an heirloom to last for generations.
