Rocket to the Moon

This is not about paper arts but I have to share it! The very talented men in my family have collaborated on this beautiful piece and I am so in love with it.  My husband, Simon is a woodworker. He works at EcoInhabit, doing the fine woodwork for Eco homes. He also makes beautiful boxes, furniture, installations and my theaters. He recently became interested in collaborations with other artists and created a challenge for my Dad. He made this beautiful base and asked my Dad to make a pot that would respond to the design. My Dad, Steve Irvine designed this metallic pot in response. I love how it looks like a rocket and transforms the stand into flames. It also allows people to see the crosses on the top of the stand. Ever more in awe of both of these men.  I hope you will check out my Dad’s amazing work. He makes ceramic pinhole cameras which are out of this world. I’ll post one of them here too.

  1. I love this, Elly! What a wonderful piece! Or should I say pieces, for they are both beautiful! Your family certainly has a strong art tradition going on. The world needs all the artists (and musicians) it can get!!! (And people think steampunk is something new!!)
