This piece came together quite by accident. A friend of mine had a box full of these wonderful vintage wooden hangers, she no longer needed, and asked me if I wanted them. I, of course said yes. They hung around in my studio for over 6 months, 'annoying me' every time I saw them . . . they act like a barrel of monkeys, they don't stack well, they looked messy, and I had no idea what I was going to do with them . . . until yesterday. I started playing around with them, and saw that when the wire (hanger) part is removed, they fit nicely on to one another. I love the way this turned out.
Vintage wooden hangers cut to size and nailed on to a 10"x10" wooden base. A small brass bell hangs from a cuckoo clock chain. A small lapel pin with a "luchador" mask finishes the piece. (click on any image to enlarge)
