9 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Fancy That! is an assemblage sculpture in my tea pot series. This little copper teapot caught my eye at my favorite antique mall, but the sweet little tea cup was found at a thrift store. I love the pretty salmon color inside the cup and the vibrant blue outside. I could imagine drinking a spot of hot tea from this vessel, pinky held high. Together the piece brings to mind an afternoon tea picnic, under a tree with a sweetly scented breeze blowing.
Assemblage art is enjoyable to me in that it allows me to bring together found objects to re-create something new and unigue. If a piece opens the mind to a feeling or pleasurable reaction, then it is sucessful. Here, a little bit of fancy might bring a smile to someone.
