A unique piece, ideal for a special gift or to decorate your home, has been made from an enchanting mix of found and crafted media capturing this tragic fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen of a girl and her love for red shoes.
All the detailed elements have been lovingly created by me, from the handmade painted wooden house, which is home to one of my unique paper dolls, to a little hand bound illustrated book of the story.
The piece also includes a vintage music box - when you pull the string it plays ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’.
The house measures 52 x 40 x 15 cm, The doll measures 45 x 20 x 7 cm, The book measures 8 x 9.5 x 1.5 cm.
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.
