Plated Blush

IMG_1494

14″  X   40″   Plated Blush is mosaic of glass on glass. Using depression era pink glass plates and bits and pieces of the same and other pink glass, the piece was created on an antique window frame. Nearly bare wood, faded with age and weather, with remnants of white. I loved the detail of the wooden pegged corners and dovetailed frame.

Ready to hang, this piece is for sale. By Heather Brush.IMG_1488

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

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.
