When I visited Cindy Friedman in Philadelphia after the Art Quilt Elements jurying, I saw a lovely little row of shadow boxes in her living room. They looked like so much fun I thought I’d try my hand especially as I’m going to need small work for the Studio Group Sale which starts in 2 days!!
If you’re in Athens any of these days come and visit us – I’ll be desperately ready for a chat!! the show is at the ATHICA gallery which is in the Chase St Warehouses, Tracy St – basically just behind Boulevard.
So two needs coincided: the need for small work for the show, and the need to try out the shadow box idea! Especially with silk…I was just about to drop a box of silk scraps off at the thrift store (where I’m afraid I probably took the quilt I lost – I’m such an avid chucker outer!)….I snagged back my box of silk and cut it up into these little fellows and they came out quite well surprisingly!
Above two neighborhood pictures and below two birds…
Forgive the reflections – I have no idea how to photograph through glass! Now I must decide what to charge for these little fellows. Unfortunately even though the boxes are only 8” x 10”, they cost $14 each (shipping or tax, they get you either way brings the price up). Then there’s a couple of hours of work involved with each one. In Philadelphia, they sell for $125 apparently, but this isn’t Philadelphia!!
so…any suggestions?…….and I’d love to see you at the show!
If you have been, thanks for reading…..Elizabeth
