Meet my pet dragon:
The inspiration for this home was two-fold: our broken A/C with temps above 100 degrees, and fire which can both warm and destroy.
It was 103° outside, two small kiddos at home, the A/C didn’t work (and the repair company that worked on it didn’t return our calls for over a week!), and then I made the mistake of cooking something on the stove-top…I should have had a PBJ sandwich…
This piece is constructed from tissue paper treated with ice-resin which creates a translucent effect. An inner support was built out of a transparency sheet cut and hinged to shape, and flame-colored parchment leaves form a separate base and perfect accent.
This is one of my entries in the Cloth Paper Scissors “Home Sweet Home” challenge.
Hot summer days, winter evenings by the fireside…What memories does this evoke for you? Let me know in the comments below!
