That April Morn And French Wire Baskets Filled

Burlap Luxe Wire Art~ Created by Dore (me)

That April Morn, and French Wire Baskets Are Filled.

Most of you know my wire art and the joy of bending, twisting, and
creating new pieces always excite the new beginnings of the delicate pieces
they become.

Little spring, sweet we found.

Laid eggs in every nest made.

Wire gently bent back and fro, welded a sweet handle to hold.

Tucked in its sweet nesting a Lavender sachet pilliow sweetly made and holiday gifted from
my sweet friend Elizabeth Maxson The Adventures of Elizabeth
How sweet the smell of spring.

After a piece of wire takes shape, it then takes on a bit more with a crusty white with
aged finish.

Another wire piece I created is dancing Pia bleu. It was created to look like our
Italian Greyhound puppy now 8 months old. The wire piece was created for one of my theatre
stage performances where I create mini French theatres of song and dance.

Wearing her bun and wire crown and a tattered grey dog collar she dances this spring holiday.

Little nests of hay.

Eggs wrapped in burlap twine and dried roses, with tattered white cloth loose bows.

Perfectly tied for the nicest nest.

Advance the flight in me, Easter Wings.

My wire cage I created from salvage. He wears his crown and feels this day.

HELLO VERA up above! We are here, enjoying the true magic of Doré. Ma chère amie, a while back when you first showed your Pia Bleu sculpture, I was mesmerized by the gorgeous lines. I still am. How I love your work, and these sweet cages and baskets are a treasure. Wonderfully crafted and so original, each piece is a true coup de génie!

Came back to look at the baskets, you are very talented.

Christel said...

Dear Dore, Hello sweet friend! What timeless, treasures you have created yet again! I love nature, and old, and you have masterfully created beauty from both! Bird cages, without a live bird are the best! An open bird cage represents not only refuge from the storm, but freedom of choice. Your lovely wire works amaze me. Pia Bleu isso life-like in wire! A beautiful piece all her own, but coupled with the cages, and nests...perfection! Have a wonderful week. I have been very busy creating a very whimsical piece, come see when you have a moment! xoxox Christel

Love all those beautiful images!

Gail Peterson said...

Doré, your wire pieces are so beautiful and different. They appear vintage. I was wondering if you have made anything larger like a chandelier! I could only imagine how gorgeous that would be...Maybe someday you will...

Hope you will enjoy your sweet baskets this Easter with your family.
A beautiful Easter to you...

Thanks for the comment, looks like both our horses lost. I thought it was an exciting race. If Wicked Strong won,
the victims would have received $70,000
Well there is still hope we
can get a triple crown this year. yvonne
