Toucan Played Cat and Mouse - Hand Cut Paper Decoupage Wooden Pineapple Dish
Toucan Played Cat and Mouse
The blues and purples of jewels, and a cornflower at the top of the pineapple, show off the playful images of the cat in the garden with the toucan and the mouse, who is sitting on top of a toadstool. The cat came from a children’s book, and made me remember childhood stories of animals looking for adventures with unusual friends. The reverse is purple with 3 statement flowers, and is signed and titled.
This dish has a wooden pineapple reclaimed base, and is firstly covered with Paper Mache, to soften the contours of the shape, and then decoupaged with hand cut papers. The images are collected from books and magazines. There are 3 layers of pictures and each is sanded before the next is applied to create a surface rich in depth and smooth to touch.
It has a hook on the back to hang on the wall, is approx. 23cm x 11cm x 5cm and weighs 120g.
