Artist Christine Claringbold and her husband Charles aren’t afraid of color. Christine, a working artist for over 20 years, specializes in painting colorful mandalas, psychedelic murals and objects such as guitars and suitcases. Her main focus centers on transforming recycled vinyl records into clocks, bowls, mirrors, jewelry and more!
You can see the Claringbolds' love of color in their House of Sarcasm. Its kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and patterns will wow you. Every room has its own uniquely rich color scheme with explosive mandalas radiating out from the ceilings and into the rest of the house. To top it all off, Christine’s vinyl record artwork and vintage psychedelic housewares collection complete the design. And just wait until they turn on the blacklights!
