Healing Angel

 

IMG_8081 Healing Angel is an altered book piece. She is roughly a foot tall and rotates on her stand. Created from an antique home medical reference book, her feathered wings are aged pages of obscurity.  Created by Heather Brush  IMG_8074IMG_8076 IMG_8079 IMG_8083

6″ x  8″  French Gem is an altered art piece in my angel series. Created from a 1966 Collins French Gem French-English Dictionary, she waits to aid in fluid conversation. I adored the blue edges of the little book and found they added nicely to the wings.

You Can’t Bank Time

You Can’t Bank Time

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6″ x 8″  You Can’t Bank Time is an assemblage piece posted for day 19 of Art Every Day Month. The silver bank was my inspiration for the work as I pondered what we really use banks for nowadays. They are somewhat obsolete. Then, thinking of what we cannot save, the obvious is time, no matter how much we would like to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a copperish green landscape of a sundial, the silver pig stands firm as someone tries to bank time. A watch face, hour glass, pocket watch, clock hands and silver beads representing seconds of time, hover but cannot be stashed away.

Drinking Outside the Box

4″ x  6″ x 10″   Drinking Outside the Box is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. It has been a little while since I’ve done any new teapot sculptures, mainly because I usually work around a special items that I’ll find, and I just hadn’t found any cool pots lately, until this one popped up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The base is a wooden box from a set of children’s nesting boxes. I love the use of whimsical items and it’s a nice shape and solid form. It is wrapped in antique paper and topped with bits of tea papers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pouring tea is created from wire, ribbon, chain and beads, and includes a special charm.
