My heart sings as I make assemblage art. I feel like an alchemist gathering bits and items that some would consider refuse and elevating them into fine art.
This little piece stands 4" tall by 1.5" in the round. It is composed of an antique metal kneeling peasant (probably from a nativity set) securely fastened with resin glue to a sandstone toy building block. An antler bone button is suspended from her hand with copper wire.
"Star Man" is the result of my deepened spirituality following the death of my sister this past fall. I took an unintentional sabbatical from art making while I grieved. While I was not productive for the last six months in making art, I delved deeply into spiritual matters reading many of the classics including the Bible, the Bhagavad Gita, Autobiography of a Yogi, and one of the most profound account of a near death experience I have ever encountered, "Dying to Be Me" by Anita Moorjani.
The Duchess of Acorns
This piece is named for the antique German playing card on the back side of the piece. The suit of Clubs in English is called Acorns in German, and obviously the Queen is a Duchess. This little bit of whimsy came together from a small size antique brass frame, a vintage postcard from Mexico, a collection of vintage casters, a regulator from a defunct clock and of course, my much beloved antique German playing card. I just had fun with creating while making this piece.
