Drink Your Milk

Drink Your Milk

5″ x 8″ Drink Your Milk is an assemblage in honor of grandmas and moms everywhere. Created from acquired objects, the piece is simple but appealing. The antique tin cup was bought at an estate sale years ago from an 86 year old woman who told me she’d had it forever and remembered her little brother drinking from it. I’ve always loved it. The creamer is antique as well, but I don’t know the history there. The pouring “milk” is made of sequins and beads.
