Three in one field

I've been very busy getting ready for the Asthma UK House and Garden Fair at Chilford Hall near Cambridge. It's the biggest event I've attended with my work, it's also a bit different in that it isn't an art fair but an event similar to the Country Living Magazine Fairs, with a large range of stallholders sellers everything from handbags, tablecloths, cupcakes and iron gates!

Just in time for the stall I've completed a new design in the series of small prints on Japanese paper; this one is inspired by the intriguing fragment of glass in Long Melford Church which depicts three hares with shared ears.

The three hares symbol is a mystery – does it symbolise the Trinity or is it a much more ancient? one from a different culture altogether? There are many examples of the three hares symbol a long long way from Suffolk, in Devon; it is also found in Chinese, Iranian and Jewish art.


"Three in one", there's something special about seeing three hares in one field . . .



Three in one field

The original limited edition unframed print can be ordered by emailing studio@celiahart.co.uk
This is a small edition of 20 prints is printed on Japanese Kikuchi Haini Kozo Koban. The image size is 15 x 15cm, the same size and paper as used for the 'Love in the air' print. Each print is named, signed and numbered in pencil by me.
An unframed print costs £48 (the price includes p&p to addresses in the UK mainland).


I will be selling cards of the Three in one field design at the House and Garden Fair, and they will soon been available from Magic Cochin's Emporium.



If you live near Cambridge I hope you can come along to Chilford Hall on Tuesday 10 May, it's a popular friendly event and raises lots of money for a very good cause. There's lots of top quality stall and some lovely food too, so bring your friends and have lunch, and stay for tea too!

    Please do let us all know more about the fair when you've gotten home and find the time.
