I’ve been making images and shapes of houses in my creations for a long time. It’s a familiar, friendly representation of a place I love. Since my husband and I have moved several times in our years together, I have come to realize that home is where you make it. It does not have to be a particular building or structure. It’s more ephemeral than that. For me, home is where my heart lives in the moment.
Home images are cropping up in my plans for some renewed shapes I’d like to create. I think it’s a universal symbol of comfort for many of us. It can evoke memories of childhood, fill our planning for future goals and establish our sense of community when we take root.
So what to make? I like to create functional items – something that is attractive and can be used. What’s your suggestion? Are there particular pieces you’d suggest? Sometimes it’s hard for me to gauge what you’d like to use in your own home. Tell me. It’s helpful!
