Home Is Where The Heart Is

Douglas Hagger

“This is a photo about family and missingness, as I considered this kitten being adopted away from her parents. Despite all the riches and beautiful possessions one may possess in one’s new circumstances, home is where the heart is. We fostered her for a brief time, and I hope she’s now found a home with a loving family.”

Finer Space’s 2 penny worth:

There’s a whiff of melodrama about - we’re reminded of a 1920s leading star’s backstage powder room, where our hero sits before show and wonders what it’s really all about.

This is a superbly designed set and we love how Doug has managed to capture a wistful longingness in this dear little ginger’s face.

Where we’d hang it:

With these rich maroon hangings and the glamorous evening glow, we’d love to see this in your boudoir, powder room, or dressing room. Beaut.

The Technical Details

Doug’s great design has been printed onto Canson Rag Photographique. This beaut museum quality archival paper is a matte stock, 100% cotton, is 310gsm and a lovely bright white. It handles shadow detail and tonal variations beautifully. The inks used are fully archival Epson UltraChrome K3® pigment inks. They’re pretty special inks, and with the correct care this piece will last a lifetime.

There’s a thin white margin around this piece, which helps with framing (so the actual piece isn’t obscured by the frame), and importantly enables you to be able to pick up the artwork without touching it (oils from your hands can ruin the printed area).

This here is a quality piece of artisan craft.

Packaging:

Your prints will arrive in strong, acid-free clear polypropylene sleeves or sheets. We’ll pop the artwork in it’s sleeve into a super-duper strong kraft mailing tube so that it survives it’s journey to you completely unscathed. For more info, see our Quality and Sustainability section.

We also include a card with the artist’s story, as well as their story behind your chosen artwork.

Upon receiving your print

Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling. There is likely to be a slight curl as it has been resting inside the postage tube. Gently unfurl. Keeping the print within it’s protective cover, you can carefully weigh each corner (for example, with a book), to help the curl straighten out.

When you do take the print out of it’s protective cover, touch only the edges of the paper, and lift the print by the opposite corners.

We do include a little ‘how to care for your print’ piece with every artwork, so if your piece is intended as a gift the lucky recipient will have guidance.
