French Theatrics Of Salvage

 BURLAP LUXE DESIGNS

My latest theatre of the arts, I design and create from
 rustic salvage wood.
Along with my bending of wire art and paper doll and 
cartapesta mice.
 
 Salvage Wood

Chosen and cut to dimensions, using the best pieces showing
signs of weathered and decaying inspiration.
Every piece gets wood glued and screwed, adding all the
rightness to a French theatre of song and
dance.
  
Theatre Taking Shape 
 Moldings, picture frames, chair rungs and drawer pulls for finials
are often found in pieces of furniture I salvage from their past.
History in such pieces inspire my art in building forgotten
 treasured play.

This Theatre hangs on a wall.
22" in height x 17" in width x 6" in depth.
 Ephemera

Vintage paper ephemera I collect, papering a backdrop wall.
Yet, I nudge along its brittle aged look with tearing and
piecing it together so this wall takes on a look
of centuries old.
 
 Paint And Tattered Curtians

A paint treatment I give it to preserve each piece rustically.
I have still yet to lay the planked stage flooring, adding
a bit more moldings and its vintage music box
under the stage base.
Hopeful in completion soon, old wood salvage finds can not be
rushed.

inspires.

Oh, I was waiting for that moment, Doré, once again you brought magic in this world. One could sit in front of this theatre, watching the performance to begin and is mesmerized with those lights and the pieces of written words, drawing us into another time. A time long gone but yet, under your magical hands, boooooom, there it is alive again -
but different, as those beings there, oh, they are something different, aren´t they?
SO beautiful and a bit whimsical as well (is this the right word, or is it wicked? Ah, my favourite is wicked ;))
Doré, a brandnew start into the year of the moon with you :)

Your theatre creation is enchanting, Dore. The ephemera is so perfect for this piece. This is what dreams are made of, and I'm sure your dreams must be heavenly. Hugs, Nancy

Dore thank you so much for yet another thoughtful comment on my blog. I have had a lot going on the past few months and have done very little blog reading. Your attention to detail in your work is beyond my grasp. What a talent you are and as always such gorgeous photography!
