DOORS

These doors form part of this week's challenge over on the Awfully Big Art Adventure ...

The right hand picture shows a fairy door in the skirting board of my Studio. I made it from lolly sticks and paperclay, the hinges are card and the handle is an upholstery tack. I put it there for my grand-daughter to find and at 3 she already loves it! Now I have to think of somewhere else in the house to hide one.

The upper photos show a hanging I made from card and paper. I was thinking a lot about the idea of home, and going home, not least because my own mother is dying. So I wanted my piece to be about home as in house, but also an eternal home element, and I was also thinking around "enter through the narrow gate" and stuff like that .....

Oh I love the fairy door...I'll have to remember that someday when I have grandkids...my girls were totally into building fairy houses when they were little...the used to teach all the other kids in the neighborhood too! (Can't imagine who put the idea in there heads to be hospitable to the fairy's?)

And doors, are one of my most favorite symbols for all that's possible, all that's yet to come, sweet secrets and new friendships.

lovely,
Laura
