I've made this little shrine/assemblage piece for my friend, Jill, who's moving home tomorrow. She's offline while preparing for the move so I feel safe in posting this pic! The scan isn't very good (I must get to grips with photographing my work instead) as the light has bounced off the back and it doesn't show the verdigris/rust colours very well! Anyway, it's an old madeline tin with a key and rusty washers wired onto it. I do so love working with knackered metal stuff! LOL The wording at the bottom says "I am home" and is stamped on aluminium tape and then blacked up with gesso. I wanted to convey my message with a simple piece and I hope that's just what I've done!
