I love working with vintage measuring tools. I love the inevitable paint drips and chips they acquire. I love the endurance they’ve shown, the patina they now posses. These yardsticks, rulers and skirt makers have all had a long hard-working life . . . and now they have a new career as art. A red-eyed Dragon named 'ACE' sits on the side, holding a golden tassel.
A wooden frame holds vintage rulers, yardsticks and skirt markers. The dragon was formally an incense burner. The tassel, has been cut down to size, was from someone's 1987 graduation mortarboard.
