Every Door is a Possibility

Today I took a detour from the shrines. I've always been drawn to architecture and doors so I was inspired to make one in clay. This piece is about 9 x 6 x 3/4 inches. A few years ago I took a photo of a door in Baja Mexico very similar to this one; it hangs in my studio. I did my best to show a flame in the gas light. I thought about adding steps, but I'll add some on the next door. I could make a hundred of these. I'm sure I won't make a hundred, but I'll make a few more with different styles. Every door is a possibility. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Love the door Linda-great detail!

  2. Hi Meredith, thanks so much.

  6. Beautiful...and I think that adding steps would be fun!

  7. I love doors and what they represent. Your title says it all!

  8. Love the title and the could spend years on doors!

  9. reminds of pictures of doors that my brother took in Mexico...

  10. You could make 100 of these and people would still love them, it's really great.
    Happy holidays.

  11. Great design! I have just the spot for it!

  12. I like your door :-}

    When I went to New Mexico I noticed the doors! I fell in love with heavy old patina doors. Not to mention the adobe houses.... I need allot more lifetimes.

    Sending Holiday Wishes!
