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.
Hot summer days, winter evenings by the fireside…What memories does this evoke for you? Let me know in the comments below!
