Green Tea

 

Green Tea

10 1/2″ x 7″  Green Tea is an assemblage piece in my tea pot series. An antique single serve tin tea pot pours green tea in the form of old dressmaker sequins. A sweet china tea cup adorned with green roses catches the tea and offers it up. An antique candlestick from Italy gives graceful height to the piece.

Coffee Classic

Coffee Classic

11″ x 9″  Coffee Classic is an assemblage in my tea pot series. Though not a tea pot, this little coffee classic is part of a two part antique percolator. It pours into another classic, a china cup, traditional in shape and color, it is filled to the brim with chain java. A silvertone metal doily supports the cup, off a black metal frame.

Black Tea

Black Tea

9″ x 7″ Black Tea is an assemblage piece in my tea pot series. I found the sweet round black teapot at Goodwill, as well as the metal works frame. I added a tin teacup from my collection and created the “tea” from chain.

Forget Me Not Tea

Forget Me Not Tea

9″ x 5″   Forget Me Not Tea is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. Using an antique bronze colored teapot and antique teacup and saucer gives the piece a slightly traditional feel, while the scrolled candleholder and beaded and wire “tea” gives it a whimsical touch.

Pandora’s Box

 
Pandora’s Box
12″ x 16″  Pandora’s Box as a mixed media assemblage on canvas. Greek mythology has always been a favorite of mine, but this particular myth is meaningful to me. Open the box, let all of the negative out, and what you have left is hope. It’s a good lesson.
 
The canvas was prepared with a coat of lightweight spackle to give it texture, then painted with acrylic in red and magenta. A black oil glaze was layered and followed by a matte varnish. The box was a found item, completely revamped. The chaos that is released from the box is created from glass bits, feather, material and wire.
 
 
Part of my series of fairy tales and fables, this is an older story that still holds truth today.

Silvery Moon

Silvery Moon

14″ x 22″  Silvery Moon is an assemblage. Using an antique clock base, I wanted to have something dramatic and beautiful, worthy of the old timepiece housing. What is not more worthy than a silvery moon caught in a tree? The moon is a found object. It is metal and hollow, and I would love to know what its original purpose was. The tree was created with 16 gauge wire. The “ground” is black velvet, with lyrical quote, “by the light of the silvery moon” in wire script.
