Lace Applique Cherub, 16x13, custom shadowbox framing, museum quality glass $225Derived from a photo in news article about a special wall in a small church in Saraland, Alabama, this was probably one of the simplest angels I have created so far. According to the article, pictured above, the church had sustained water damage from Hurricane Katrina, and the wet sheetrock of one of the walls had sagged, folded and draped itself into a shape which looked to me like an angel with her wings outstretched. With very little manipulation, a piece of vintage lace removed from the front of a woman’s 1980’s era blouse, formed herself into that graceful template I have used many times and think of as my Saraland Angel. Once I had tacked the lace form into shape, all that was required was a halo of pearls (Thank you again, Aunt Melle, for your wonderful collection of vintage costume jewelry.)The piece is exceptionally well-framed in a custom made shadowbox with museum-quality glass which is practically invisible, much finer than the customary non-glare glass used in everyday framing., fiber art
