A stunningly beautiful late Victorian c. 1880's red velvet boudoir box, still with the original silk inlay, and metal binding to the outside. Inside the main body sits an early 1900's heart shaped timeworn pin cushion, with old pins, left just where the last person placed them. This is backed with glorious faded silk ribbon, originally from another boudoir box, this one from c. 1910.
From the pincushion heart, the start of the quote springs "Love is blindness, I don't want to see" (by U2, Jack White, and others), sculpted from wire. The last part of the quote floats across the front of the lower part of the storybox. Inside the lid to the other side, is miniature handmade barbed wire, with a tiny fragment of Georgian silk caught upon it.
The whole box measures 22cm tall x 16cm wide, and 10.5cm deep.
All sculptures are made from repurposed vintage and antique items, and, as such, may show evidence of being timeworn.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
