Full Circle

Full Circle, altered book art by Virginia Beach artist, Maggie Kerrigan

Full Circle was my first experiment with making a bloom out of a book. It was very satisfying to see how beautiful this piece became as the 3-D nature of it evolved.

I chose this souvenir book of Leeds Castle purely for the colorful pages and their potential for the book. Imagine my delight at seeing that the finished product resembled flowers in the castle gardens!

Don and I visited this castle in 2003 with our toddler daughter while we were living in London. They have a hedge-garden that has been made into a maze, and we were in there for hours (it seemed)! What a fun day, including the encounter with the castle guard who was bound by duty to be stoic, but we could see the struggle when he saw our little one.

This piece brings back wonderful memories for me, but I’m hoping that the future owner will create her/his own connection with the piece–whether from a love of books or a love of gardens, or something else entirely.
