A very big shrine

Two posts in one day? I know. I've lost my marbles.

I wanted to quickly share another new project that I created for that show that you will be entirely fed of hearing about. *See below for details*

So here it is... a GIANT drawer shrine!

The piece measures 16" x 28" which is absolutely monstrous compared to my other work. I think it looks much better in person than in the photos. It looks far better proportioned in real life... you can get sort of submerged in the details.

All of the toadstools and little houses in this piece are the pit fired clay I was experimenting with. There's a lovely little twig ladder and a clothes peg 'tree fort' with tiny books and buttons. The nest you see at the top left is one of many we have found here over the past couple of windy years.

* Want to see this piece in person? "Sugar Plum & Other Faeries" will be running through December at Impresario Artisan Market in Cobourg. You are invited to the very fancy pants opening reception being held on December 7th 5pm - 7pm. Shhh, don't worry, it'll just be pretend fancy, not pretentious fancy.
