Has your E-Mail address changed? And, if so, any chance I could have it. Promise I won't give it out. I know how awfull spam can be.

Hello! I am interested in getting in touch with DeGroot or his estate/family in order to get permission to use one of his pieces in a small movie. Do you know how I could go about this? Does anyone know if any museums have had exhibitions of his work?

His first name is Theodore, and his work was sold through Austin Productions who is still (I believe) in business. If you find him, please let us know and tell him about all his fans on this blog. Other than that I'm afraid I can't help much.

Several years ago, I found a lath art pattern in a craft magazine. I had not made anything like this before, but I completed the picture and gave it to my daughter at her new home open house. It is the picture of a couple of ducks on the water. Considering I was inexperienced at the project, it turned out pretty good. I have looked for more patterns to make other pictures. Do you know where I could purchase patterns?
I would be pleased to post my project if you are interested.
My email address is jthoms9@shaw.ca

I don't know of anyone selling patterns, but if you do locate someone, please post the link here and I will check it out and post it in our links section.

In the mean time, you might try http://www.woodworksandcrafts.com/phpBB2/index.php to see if anyone there knows of a source.

I have a lath art picture of a barn scene, signed by Taylor. On the back it is noted: Taylor Made Lath Art, Crestwood, Illinois 1990. How would I go about getting information on this piece? i.e. on the artist, possible value, etc. Many thanks, Donna

I used to see these quite often for sale on the web a few years ago, by the artist themselves. I think the name of the artists were Richard Taylor and his wife, but I'm not sure.

I just did a quick google and found Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article on a craft show May 16th 1992.

I am looking for lath art kits that I can cut myself. Years ago I bought the kits through Lath Art of Canada. Some of your precut pictures are similar to the kits that I have seen, but I don't want precut kits. Can you help me? My email address is amockler@chartermi.net.

Webmaster said...

Hi, Lath Art of Canada was me. I don't sell kits anymore, and aside from the Woodscape Artkits pre-cut, I don't know of anyone else selling Lath Art Kits.

I recently purchased A DeGroot piece from an auction/yardsale. I've been looking into this piece and have not really found many answers. My big question is.....My piece does not have the Lath Art logo on it from Austin. Does that mean it's an original or is it a fake? It's a really good knock off if it is. The style of the covered bridge matched another covered bridge piece I saw on a website.

Webmaster said...

I wish I knew. The last time I saw one up close was at least 20 years ago. If you check e-bay regularly, you'll be able to find close-ups of genuine Austin DeGroot LathArt.

I think the LathArt logo was on the paper backing - the DeGroot signature was on the front or frame.

It has a wood burned degroot signature. It is lacking a stamp of Lath Art on the back. I was hoping it was not a mass produced one. Either way it is on my living room wall staying right where it is. It is such a pretty piece. The covered bridge on this site has the same style railing, fence and trees as the one I have. Mine just is a different angle so you can see under the bridge. Thanks anyway.

It seems that some of Degroot's work and/or Austin Productions of his work are starting to turn up in thrift stores and the like. Is there some way people could upload photos to one site so that it can be a "photo museum" of sorts?

Not sure if this web blog is still active but I've recently acquired a Degroot and cannot find it anywhere on the internet. I do not have the 'title' but its a larger item with a picture of a lady in a white dress on a porch. Any information on this item would be appreciated

Hi,
I have a woodscape art kit of the bald eagle complete except for the painting instructions. Is there anywhere I can get a copy of the instructions either in a download or a paper?
