Playing with Faux Doors

This is a steel framed door in a church on 5th Ave., NYC, with a plaster inset panel made with an idea to blend into the limestone wall. The photo does not do full justice to our attempt to get the door in the ambient light of the church setting to become invisible into the wall. We did not make the door, our task was to clean up the existing for Easter 2009.

It still looks good and blends in now that it has had a bit of time to dry out.

Our friend Nick Micros was the last one, pre 2001, to work on cleaning up the door. Since he moved with his family off to Switzerland we get the fun of working in the path behind him.

The plaster takes a good deal of abuse and needs a spruce up on occasion.
