One of my favourite poems is 'Goblin Market' by Christina Rossetti and so I have been inspired to produce various pieces in response. The first was a corset , here photographed in a very old mirror and previously written about when I did a window for PYF. Now some buttons have emerged from the realms of the poem too and are for sale ( see right hand column).
The first is the berry that the sisters are tempted by , the second is a lock of the golden hair that fades as a result. Then the initial of the sisters Lizzie andLaura and the silver coin used to pay the goblins. Finally the last two buttons are a feather and some fur bursting out through torn satin.......goblins !
