Pittock Mansion is a fascinating historical home overlooking the City of Roses, filled with furnishings and decor of the era. Please enjoy these photos I took of the mansion in preparation to create specific work for the museum gift shop.
I am inspired by so many details in the architecture and furnishings. You know I love gold, so adding it to my designs is a given! You’ll find a variety of my work at the museum gift shop from wall pocket vases to wooden boxes with glass tile inserts. The designs I created depict some of my favorite features of the mansion.
