"Oh Happy Day"●
Assemblage in a silver wooden cigar box, with a glass front. The box is lined with bright colored cotton cloth. Nestled in the box is an aged sardine can, embellished with a string of faux pearls. A white porcelain Happy Buddha, holding a bright orange die, stands inside. The box sits on six wooden dominos and is topped with a vintage amber drawer pull. In private collection.

"Family Life" This is a sweet box I made for a very dear sister of mine. It is bright, colorful and very fun. The momentos are meaningful, some are corney, but all are lovely and happy. This is a wooden cigar box collaged inside and out with magazine images filled with trinkets and found objects of a life lived. Top and feet are brass drawer pulls. In private collection.
