Wire and papier mache Sculpture  Falling leaf by MesssieJessie

102.00 GBP

Wire and papier mache Sculpture Falling Leaf

The figure is made from wire and papier mache. Her colours have been kept natural and neutral to have the feel of nature and her elements. Her pose represents a leaf twisting and twirling in the wind as it falls from the tree indicating a change in the seasons. Her hair is made from a soft neutral light coloured silk embroidery thread. Her dress is made from a green taffeta, organza, book papers and a very fine weblike metal mesh under the skirt.

She measures 38 cm high, 14 cm wide and 16 cm deep. She stands posed on a wooden base which has been paper mached.

Carefully and lovingly packaged.

205.00 GBP

Assemblage wooden vintage box with a story to tell. Inspired by beautiful chinoiserie wallpapers.

Small 49cm long , 18cm wide, 9cm deep, assemblage vintage wooden box inspired by beautiful chinoiserie wallpapers.

A tall vintage wooden mysterious box come to life from the inspiration of nature, beautiful chinoiserie wall papers and a touch of Pandora's box.

A window has been cut out of the box and made to look as if it has been broken from an explosion of moths. The moths are made from card and paper, strengthened with wire and decorated using acrylic and a very fine wire mesh.

The inside of the box has been collaged and painted using acrylic to represent the antiqued worn wall papers. Two paper mache birds sit on the inside door, again inspired by the chinoiserie wall papers.

Sitting on a miniature wooden table painted with acrylic is a small vintage brass box which has been opened using the key lying on the floor under the table.
