JONATHAN GLEED

GJ01 - A Million Thoughts - 48 x 48 - Acrylic on canvas-$4300

A Million Thoughts

Acrylic on canvas  48 x 48

$4300

Mother Nature provides Jonathan with an unending supply of traditional subjects like the ocean, skies and mountains; but it’s when natural and engineered worlds collide that he sees the most potential for a painting. A perfectly warm sky hitting the cold concrete of a building or a person shielding themselves from the elements through a rain-covered windshield during rush hour – these moments are his inspiration.

GJ02- Washed Out-24x36-Acrylic on canvas-$2200

Grace

Reclaimed Marble  33 x 5 x 6.5

I sculpt in seasons. In the spring and fall I concentrate on stone, in winter I carve ice and snow, and in summer I travel creating sand monuments… I feel that there’s still so much to learn, to experience and experiment with my art. I will carve until I die.

DID YOU KNOW?

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH…

Vanja Gavric of 

RAVEN & STONE

Vanja utilizes the lost wax method and metal forming techniques to craft each Raven & Stone collection. She invites inspiration from urban architecture, organic textures and forms, and is heavily influenced by minimalist and industrial design. Each Raven & Stone piece is diligently constructed by hand-using only the highest quality materials.

Vanja’s deep-seated passion for art and design has consistently been a driving force in her life. Her love of creating and working with her hands has led to exposure of many different artistic mediums. The collision of these creative influences is heavily present in her design process and execution. In order to perfect her craft, Vanja has invested time apprenticing under Master Goldsmith Andrea Roberts.
