"Muse's Museum"I adore interactive art pieces. I love being able to touch, hold, and play with the parts and pieces that amuse and bemuse. This piece is an assemblage that begs you to hold and touch and play.
A vintage oak file box, fitted with parts of a wooden spice rack tower, and covered in green tissues and overlaid with sewing pattern tissue. The 8 slots are filled with unrelated items that are interactive and hold secrets of their own. A harlequin doll head filled with glass beads and sealed with a glass stopper, a vintage wooden door knob, a wooden puzzle, and a tea ball with a surprise inside.
Next in line are a kids' kaleidoscope, a strong magnet and ball bearings, a wooden shaker and a small jar full of "love letters".
A vintage fishing lure hangs on the lid - when you pull the lure it will gyrates as it retrieves.
The fun is in the viewer's imagination . . . what do you see?
