House of Sarcasm
Artist Christine Claringbold and her husband Charles aren’t afraid of color. Christine has been a working artist for over 20 years and likes to use paint as a “living entity.” She specializes in painting colorful mandalas, psychedelic murals and objects such as guitars and suitcases. Her main focus is transforming recycled vinyl records into clocks, bowls, mirrors, jewelry and more!
You can find all of her work in her online store – Eye Pop Art.
You can see the Claringbold’s love of color in their House of Sarcasm. Its kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and patterns will wow you. The overpowering, explosive mandalas radiate from the center of its ceilings and are echoed throughout, and each wall has its own uniquely rich color scheme. The home design is then complemented and completed by Christine’s vinyl record artwork and vintage psychedelic houseware collection.
Be sure to also check out the music studio of Christine and Charles’ band, Dartgun & the Vignettes while you’re there!
