the collection

this piece was constructed from an old display case thing i have had since i was little.
the oil painting is sunk into the boxes (thanks woodshop guys!) so that it is flush with the rest.
the birds and various other bits are made with sculpey.
there is everything from lace and buttons to knobs and jewels in the boxes.

approximately 23" x 26"



the poem reads:
chloe keeps her best things
in neat, fancy rows.

but it's hard to find friends
who don't mind the crows.


the birds are perched on driftwood collected at the beach by my lovely mother.





and finally, buttons!

Wonderful indeed. It's like looking into a Alice-in-Wonderland-fantasy world. Incredible. Can't stop looking.
