Sake Cup Mary
MIXED MEDIA assemblage of found objects in wooden box
3.5 x 3.5 x 2 in


Mary in a chrysanthemum design of bones and teeth in a traditional wooden Japanese sake cup. A Japanese hairpin and five-yen coins hold the hanging chain. An Ethiopian pendant cradles one half a wishbone. What was the wish?

"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
