so here is a sneak preview of the god and goddess of all creation, i don't normally do sneak previews, but i have been sewing like a crazy person, since i decided it was a good idea to unpick the ladies entire face when i had less than 24 hours before i left and had to fit in a school play and goodbye with my little girl. i am off home to pack and then off to new orleans in the morning to install these beauties in the ceiling panel of the eiffel society restaurant.

so more later....

prints for sale

For my last show I did a series of prints on pearlescent paper, the following are in a series of 50 and are available. If you are interested, just drop me a line on my email louise.riley@gmail.com and we can work it out, if you are close come and visit me in my studio! If you are far, I will give you a quote for postage. The first 1 is £30 framed (27.5cm x 22.5cm), the next 4 are £40 framed (32cm x 42cm) . The photos were taken with my point and shoot (not ideal) so everything looks a bit green, in reality, they are a sort of champagney cream.


'Family Tree'

'Flesh & Bone'


'Mother of Pearl'

The piece de resistence is the final one, a limited edition of 10 at £150 (40.5cm x 50.5cm)
It is called 'Cordelia' and is based on an Indian proverb she shared with me:
the soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tears - tribe unknown

The colour is hand done, so each one has its own unique quality, the jewel tears are attached to the glass, turning into mini chandeliers hanging from the wood in the frame. This photo does not do it justice, I will have to borrow a decent camera!

Mia and Cordelia hanging out together in my studio, everytime I looked at them, I got a little thrill of happiness.
