About Starlite Originals
Starlite Originals celebrates an innovative and gorgeous balance of classic Old World artistic traditions and modern perspectives, methods, materials and styles. This artwork represents the individual visions of the gifted artists that design and sculpt for Starlite Originals Studios, as well as the company's commitment to showcasing new and provocative looks and styles.
Founded in California in 1972 as a family-owned fine art print and publishing company, Starlite Originals has grown to embrace its role as a foundry for innovative emerging artists working in a range of materials. Many Starlite Originals pieces are sculpted in resin and then encased in crystal-clear, hand-carved Lucite.
The creative process at Starlite Originals begins with each artist carefully carving their vision in soft sculptural clay called plasticine. After the first carving, a team of master mold makers craft first-generation models using the traditional "lost-wax" casting method. A variety of metals may be used in each sculpture, including hand-tooled finishing elements like Lucite, wood, brass, fine pewter, copper, and 24k gold vermeil. The vibrant colors in each sculpture are a result of a patina technique using heat, various chemicals, and acid to permanently oxidize the colors to the metal sculpture.
