How To Order

Each Ancient Artifice replica is individually custom crafted and hand painted by Linda Rosato and Tom Wehr in our Kempton, Pa. studio. 

Options to consider:

  • IMAGE
    • Select an image from one of our Collections. 
    • Or, If you prefer an image we currently don't offer, let us know. We are constantly adding to our collections.
  • SIZE
    • Sizes currently available are shown on each individual page.*
    • Smaller versions can be produced. The images shown on this site have formats that are square, vertical or horizontal.  Variation in sizes from posted dimensions should maintain the format. We can suggest a format size for you if you want a smaller version.

    • EDGE, SHAPE & DISTRESS LEVELS
      We offer different levels of edge treatments from nearly Straight to very Irregular.
      The plaster applications can range from pristine (like they may have appeared 3000 years ago) to major deterioration (like they were just discovered).
      Note: Most of the examples on the collection pages are Level 3 and 4 treatments.

    Level 1 Edge & Shape - Straight edge with slight variations on corners
    Level 1 Distress - Almost total coverage with plaster. Hints of broken areas
    LEVEL 1

    Level 2 Edge & Shape - Edge more broken and irregular
    Level 2 Distress - More exposed base plaster

    Level 2

    Level 3 Edge & Shape - Edges more dramatic - shape starts to distort
    Level 3 Distress - Rougher surface texture with more show through of base plaster

    Level 3

    Level 4 Edge & Shape - Larger areas of the substrate carved and contoured from edges, shape becomes irregular.
    Level 4 Distress - Plaster crackled with larger broken out background plaster (not in primary image areas)

    Level 4

    Edge, Shape and Distress levels can be mixed (i.e. Level 2 Edge treatment with a level 4 Distress Level)

    PLEASE NOTE: Each replica is a one-of-a-kind, hand crafted original. No two are exactly alike. Some variations in the edge treatment, plaster application, tone and color are to be expected. We will provide an e-mail image of your creation prior to shipment for your approval.
