Bits & Pieces

It’s amazing how bits and pieces scavenged from the garage can be transformed in the hands of true artists.

My sister Joy and I both have garage studios brimming with junk we’ve been collecting for years, knowing that at some point we’ll find the perfect use for it.  I mean literally “junk” and I mean literally “for years”!  Broken fragments, leftovers from projects, weird parts of discarded items that rightfully should have been relegated to the trashbin were detoured to boxes in the garage.  Lots of boxes, with lots of junk.  But cool junk.  Don’t you wish you could shop our garages?  Well, we did.

Joy and I have collaborated on a collection of art pieces that utilize lots of those collected bits and pieces.  Little boxes (some handmade with discarded wood and old hardware, some vintage) become canvases for assemblages of “junk” …  an old sewing machine drawer now showcases an 1893 sprinkler head, a rusty metal horse comb makes a strong graphic statement in a handmade box, layers of discarded materials are artfully arranged to become clockfaces.  One box is an abstract collage made entirely of unaltered scraps of wood, broken chopsticks and used paint stirrers.  Tiny glass vials are strung on an old glass slide viewing box and rewired to create a one-of-a-kind light.  Antique tripods are deconstructed to construct new architectural lamps.  We’re having fun!  And feeling a bit less like hoarders in the process.

We’re lucky to have Joy here from Florida this week and we’ll be debuting our collection at the ArtOberfest walkabout in South Park, San Diego this Saturday evening.  Graffiti Beach, a great shop dedicated to promoting independent artists, has graciously offered to feature our work in their space.  This is a really fun event in a super cool neighborhood and we’re excited to be a part of it.  Accenting our creations will be some of our late father’s vintage photographs.  Please come by and say hi!  After Saturday, the collection will move to my shop at SoLo.

A Gentle Reminder

When I need to take a breath, I walk around the corner from my home studio to a tiny canyon rim park where, among the coastal desert plantings, the Del Mar Garden Club installed beautiful stone benches engraved with inspirational quotes.

I try.

Developing Story

Writer Kersten Wehde penned a touching story about my late father’s life’s work of black and white photography and my project to preserve and share it.  Published in Riviera and Angeleno Interiors magazines last fall, it was a beautiful tribute to a true talent.
