Art I like - Susan Jane Dunford

These two postcards have been floating around in my visual resources file (or rather, pile) for about four years now. The one on the left was a source for some work during the foundation course, and I love the way the various boundaries of the house - or castle? - make mysterious spaces.

The works are small, 12 cm and 15 cm high; their maker, Susan Jane Dunford, is a jeweller, making sculptural boxes and jewellery inspired by old architecture - dreaming spires, chapels, birdhouses, porches, terraces, manors, beach huts.
This turret earring stand is on her website - very fairy tale!
