Pipe Fitting
MIXED MEDIA assemblage of found objects in wooden box
7 x 7 x 4 in
No. A-6

A brass pipe fitting, perhaps a mixer valve? It was purchased for $1 at Alice's thrift shop in Winslow, AZ and transforms into a glittering religious icon. The box is Japanese rice measure, edged in iron to prevent the wooden measure from deterioratingwith use. Buddha presides. Mary nestles in a cast nutshell spoon with her pearls of wisdom. Skulls remind us that the journey is every day.

"Raised in the Southwest and having lived a number of years in Japan, I have had the opportunity to collect bits and pieces of culture not my own. My studio is filled with chest. The chests are filled with drawers, which are filled with intriguing, eclectic oddments. The objects in the drawers speak to me. The challenge is to get them out of the drawers to speak to someone else. I hope you are listening. XO"-VL
