A Victorian flower frog from around 1890, an old lamp reflector, and a differential gear are framed by the base of an old musical box. All that survived from the musical mechanism was the “on/off” lever on the bottom edge but this added such a little touch of whimsy.

I have two major shows coming up so between the planning, the preparing the work for travel—always a concern, and, not to mention producing as many pieces as I can, I am busier then I had anticipated.

I don’t mind being busy. Actually I prefer it. I get so lost in creating that the pressure is almost unnoticed. It’s one thing to have to drill a hole, for example, in a very fragile part and worry about getting it right versus just not having the time to worry, and just doing it… Not unlike jumping into a pool.
