The addition of green paint adds an aged effect. The thin strip of copper is mounted on to a strip of very fibrous hand made paper which in turn is float mounted on cream card.Note the Celtic Knot is an ancient symbol representing eternity, whether that be in love, loyalty, faith or friendship. The form here is usually known as the Sailors Knot, formed with rope to remember loved ones, a bond that cannot be broken. Hand signed by the artist on the mount lower right.

Please excuse any reflection/flash in the photographs which have been taken through the glass. Measures 42 x 31.5cm including the frame. Hugh Clawson is a self taught painter and sculptor from Belfast. He had an interest in art from an early age and after working as an Upholsterer for 18 years he gave up to become a full time artist holding his first one man exhibition in Belfast in 2003.
Since then he has become internationally recognised and is represented by a number of prestigious Northern Irish Galleries and exhibits regularly with the RUA (Royal Ulster Academy).
