Every so often I will peruse Etsy and Pinterest to check out what some of my customers are making. Check out what I found today….
Wev’e all seen the cute little fairy house doors but what happens when you take it a bit further? Not just to the lands of fairy’s but to lands of ogres, bats, sea creatures and other mystical places.
While quickly flying through hundreds of Pinterest images I kept seeing these adorable fantastical doors. You could tell they had to be from the same artist so I had to take a closer look. These doors have such a distinct look; sort of elegant and whimsical melded in a way that makes you wonder just who lives there. LOL
Magical Doors by artist Kim Detmers can lead just about anywhere. How about to a spooky castle?
How about to an ogre’s home?
Turns out these wonderful doors are created by polymer clay artist Kim Detmers
I love the way that Kim mixes her cane work with textures and color giving the piece a very cohesive appeal. Kim also does a wonderful job letting color work for her weather it’s in a complementary or contrasting way in MHO she nails it.
Often when canes are used to create sculptural pieces they can become a bit flat, not literally but visually, but she has done a great job of mixing it up to keep your eye traveling around the piece to see what other little detail is hiding.
I don’t know about you but this has given me a bit of inspiration I’ve never done a fairy door or house my feet stay a bit more in this realm. But I have been selling these cute fairy door and window molds, and with Christmas just around the corner maybe I’ll take them for a spin and make a Christmas Elf door??? Hmm I wonder, what will this inspire you to create?
