This is a 3cm thick sculpture of a door fromOld City Jerusalem, cast in transparent soda-lime glass with polished edge bevels. The cast has captured the details of the original door exceptionally well, even containing textures from peeling paint, etc. The cast is set into a steel frame made in such a way as to subtly echo a lintel. The 4cm thick frame is constructed from sections of rectangular box steel & welded to make a frame that avoids being too industrial looking. The finish is a natural ageing, created with chemicals, protected by shellac.

'The work addresses issues of choices in life - the doors we choose to open, close or ignore. The fact the door is solid & cannot now be opened or closed, alludes to our lives as individuals & how often we have to abide by our choices not being able to alter the consequences.' Katya Filmus
