The Fire folio (11 prints in an edition of 10)

85.00 95.00

Shortly after my mom turned 13, a horrific fire consumed a home nestled in a wooded area beside a marsh in my hometown. She’d never even realized there was a house there. Half a century later my grandma found a newspaper that triggered memories to flood back and confirmed some very vivid ones my mother has of that day and those that followed.


Now a nature preserve, in August 2018 I took a walk through the marsh with my parents searching for some of those memories.

Included are 11 handmade laser prints (some double sided) on 20 year old newsprint with uniquely added gold watercoloring, heat glazing, burning, and tears. Each comes wrapped in a custom burned 4 flap envelope with signature and edition number. Edition of 10.

The first 3 sold will include a gold splattered 45 single of “Popsicles and Icicles” by the Murmaids (pictured below); the song which my mother listened to at the skating rink the night of the fire. It makes for quite a haunting soundtrack to the images and story.

10% of proceeds goes to DuPage Pads, an organization helping to end homelessness by providing housing and support in DuPage County, Illinois.
