Commissioned Sculptures

Commissioned figures are constructed¬† from an individuals own ‘stuff’. ¬†After we determine size and position (wall sculpture, seated figure, reclining figure etc.) I will create a figure made from the materials you send me,.

What I look for: costume jewelry, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, broaches, pins, cuff links, clips, barrettes, old watches and time pieces. unused house and car keys, key rings, patches and badges, game pieces, crossword puzzle pieces, toys: army soldiers, cowboys and Indians etc. dominos, chess pieces, checkers, poker chips, stuff from the office desk drawer, stuff from the junk drawer, wine corks, napkin rings, crotchet hooks, golf tees, stuff from the old sewing baskets.

This stuff, like all of us, is stuff we’ve held onto and don’t want to get rid of but don’t know quite what to do with it, because this stuff still holds a particular memory or a dream. All of this can me incorporated into a sculpture. Not only does it become a piece of art, but it becomes a visual time capsule of all the things we use and create from this particular time in our culture…
