Granite, Rust and Glass

I love all the elements in here.  A granite sculpture, a glass ball and a rusty “R.”"R"


Max was the consummate rust collector. For as long as I can remember my Uncle collected rusted objects from his island in Maine and brought some of  them to his stone courtyard in NYC. I’ve gotten the bug too, always looking down on city streets or in junk piles hoping to find the coolest rusted shape buried and thought of as trash. Thus the reason for some of my embroideries embellished with rusted bottle caps and other chunks of oxidized metal. Here is only one out of hundreds of pieces in the courtyard. Not only is the piece itself engaging but the rust running down the white makes for a complete story of texture, color and shape. I’ll post more one at a time….:

Blue Ribbon

I can’t remember ever winning a blue ribbon in anything before so I made one for myself. It’s the blue ribbon for surviving this long.
