Housed within a vintage 1930’s typewriter ribbon tin, a tiny little 1930’s lead painted frog figure is wanting a kiss… maybe he will turn in to a Prince? He sits upon a hand-embroidered lily pad, made from vintage green cotton, embroidered with vintage silk thread. This lily pad, in turn, rests upon a pond surface, fashioned from an offcut of blue celluloid from a 1940’s bag. The Frog Prince is accompanied by a waterlily, fashioned from a vintage 1940’s millinery flower. The words “kiss the frog” are sculpted from inside the tin lid, sewn on to a fragment of duck egg blue Georgian patterned silk, originally from quilt.
Total size, when closed, measures 6.5cm x 6.5cm x 2.5cm deep.

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.
