Living Close To Nature In My Art Designs

 Burlap Luxe Home And Art

Creating to move Heaven and Earth.
Coarsely created to move you soulfully in wonderment.

 My strong passion for creating what I see from day to day comes to light, inspired
by nature.
Using a collection of found objects such as, aviary or chicken wires, old discarded book pages,
egg cartons all in the mix of Cartapesta~Paper Mache art.
Evidence of my life long passion for wild birds and creating Frenchly around them, can
always be found somewhat creatively in my home studio.

 The start of Cartapesta paper mache.

 My latest art piece artist created
~by Dore Callaway 
of Burlap Luxe
 Hand Sculpted Bird Lands In Peacefulness.
~ By Dore
Sits perched at its place of roadside sanctuary.

"Oh bird of my soul fly away to the sanctuary of
your aviary of rest."
~ Dore 

 Nature finds itself in the likeness of a twig chandelier.
Nature from my garden.

 Pieces of gathered and collected nesting can be added in its aviary.
Feathers of wings, twigs of nesting, eggs of beauty, clip art of vintage bird book ephemera.

 Measures: 21" in height, 7" in width, 4" 3/8 in depth...
Wild Bird 5" in length
With a bit of tatter old cloth canvas for its nesting.

 Twig Chandelier,

My pockets are always filled with natures gatherings, its my inspiration.

 "I created beyond my limitations, looking
for the bird in my soul."
~ Dore

 In agreement with creating.
The soul of a birds roadside bird wing sanctuary, a sheltered rest.

 Creating with old decayed age.
painted with washed away weathering to its detail, revealing mottled pigments of old.

 All created with paper mache Cartapesta and wire form.
Not of mass market materials, but of pieces and scraps of paper and cardboard's.

 "Put a birdcage near a window so that the bird can see the sky?
its much better to look than not to,
even if it hurts."
~Klaus Kinski

Seeing this newest piece of art created by you sets me in a peaceful welcoming of the weekend. You create reflective beauty from your soul.
I will return again to comment more - but till then, the bird, the shrine, the thoughfull sanctuary encourages relaxation and peace.

Just beautiful. I'm envious of your ability to creatively transform your inspiration into such stunning objects. Bisous.

It is always so nice to see your creative heart. I love this new piece. It is serene and beautiful. The creativity just flows from you. I still love my original French Hen House that I received not too long ago from your creative soul. So beautiful. Have a wonderful week end.

That looks like a true antique, just gorgeous!!! xo K

Suz said...

I love the, for lack of another description, card holder that you have created. I would use it as a card holder. And I have been looking for a vintage silver tray for ages that you have pictured in the first photo.

Bonjour Doré

Les oiseaux nous inspirent, n'est-ce pas? Je suis chez moi maintenant, après avoir de bonnes vacances en Californie, Carmel....j'ai fait la connaissance de Jan de Luz à Carmel Valley où j'ai visité son jardin. On y trouve un trésor d'antiquités! J'ai acheté son livre, "The French Touch" et il l'a signé. Mais lui aussi, il est artiste de passion!

Tes oeuvres son delicats et magnifiques. Anita

You may notice that your wild bird is missing from your sidebar.
It's on it's way to 34th street!
I saw it yesterday morning as I popped in for a quick visit after I finished my fbof post. ( I had to jet out the door...not to be late to the clinic.) I am so relieved that she was available to fly to me this morning.

You made her for me.
I know it.
I am going to print the words you wrote to me yesterday...fold them...and tuck them behind your precious paper sculpture, Dore.

You have lifted me so.
Bless you.

Lynne said...

...your words on my blog...you didn't write them yesterday...your wrote them at the top of this amazing morning.

Dear Doré, so many thoughts, they are lying in this sculptured picturedream like in a a haven, a nest. This world is so often so blind to see, but you open eyes.
Have it like in a birds nest, never stop creating as you connect with nature´s spirit.
Hugs to you Doré, your friend Méa

Your art has so much soul, Dore. I could just see a whole wall filled with your beautiful art. I hope summer is treating you well and I am sending rain your way! The girls and I are heading to laguna beach this weekend. I am excited to just lie on the beach and breath in the ocean.
