- the story
Shall We Dance?
Frank Sinatra knew what he was talking about when he crooned, "Heaven looks at you from the Brooklyn Bridge." You can almost hear him singing as the couple in artist Christine Schukow's diorama waltzes along the river's edge. Schukow masterfully brings this iconic New York scene to life with as much effortless style as ol' Blue Eyes himself, pairing a reproduction of an antique photograph with clay-fiber figurines. The effect is nothing short of magical. The perfect gift for your favorite couple (or dance partner), this limited edition piece comes matted, framed and signed by the artist. Made in New York.

- the maker
Christine has been working as an artist all of her adult life, beginning with the designing of silk-screened clothing, then jewelry design and for the past 18 years in the creation of these wonderful framed dioramas. As people view her work a smile usually appears on their face as feelings of nostalgia and a yearning for the simpler things in life overcome them. Images of a sunny day at the beach, a country carnival, a drive-in movie, grandmas cottage in autumn, camping out, a honeymoon at Niagara Falls or a bicycle ride in the countryside. All these images and so many more portray her inner self, expressed in her art. Christine’s hope is that you also will take moments in this busy world to reflect on and enjoy the simpler things in life. collection
