Smoking TIn Man
2″ x 6″ Smoking Tin Man is an assemblage piece in my people series. He is created from antique tins for pipe tobacco and denture powder. His head is made from the remains of a medal of some sort, and a cigarette snap loads tin. I truly would have liked to see someone get a bang out of those in person. I have a twisted sense of humor.

SOLD!!!! 12″ x 11″ Pop’s Vices is an assemblage piece representing the working man’s inner vices. An antique lunchbox is the base and the outside remains presentable, as father would be to the world.

Inside, we find the other side of father. The tools of leisure: the pipe, the cigarettes, the tobacco and lighter. The cards and dice. The drink. The pin-up girls and the evidence of lust. All hidden away from the world. But in this instance, the Pandora’s box is left wide open.
