Having rescued a broken down organ from the trash, I was able to re-purpose it, a little at a time, into other Foundlings. I get such satisfaction being able to find beauty in the most overlooked of items, a broken down organ, a worn cutting board, a piece of a brass bed and an old car horn. This is Gabriel, one of two pieces that will be in the Garden District Gallery show and I am hopeful that they were packed well enough to show up in New Orleans intact. I imagine that this is like letting little kids travel alone and waiting by the phone for a call letting you know that they arrived safely.
