Waiting For a Kiss

"Waiting for a Kiss"
So, I got this unfinished bowl, from a wood turner friend of mine. Apparently the bowl was a 'reject' from her shop, as it had a small crack on one side.

The bowl sat in my studio for months . . . then one day, I started drilling holes into it and adding rusty nails and screws and paint and bits and bling and images, and this is what happened. . . .
Because the bowl was uneven on the bottom, I had to figure out how to stabilize it. I fitted a vintage 'baby moon' hubcap to the bottom and magic happened.
This added movement to the piece.
The frog on top, well that's the Prince who is "Waiting for A Kiss"

It waddles.   It's lovely. . . .what do you think? ~SOLD~

  1. It's been a LONG time since I visited. I just found you again today. My blog had a meltdown and I lost all my contacts on my sidebars. I've been slowly bringing them back whenever I find a person whose blog I admire.

    Of course, you probably know I am in AWE of this beautiful, rusty, ethereal assemblage. It is fabulous. I'm also glad I found you again, because I've missed your art and assemblages.
