On the Wall

These next two found object assemblages were created to hang on the wall.  One resembles a subject of a Picasso painting and the other is fashioned after a Wizard of Oz character searching for his heart.  Most of the items I picked for these pieces were once used in someone's kitchen...not knowing that years down the road they would become part of a work of art.  Here is the reveal...

"Nanny Tin Panny" - strainer pan head; shoe brush hair;
jello mold eyes; fence topper eyebrows; nutmeg grater nose;

mellon baller mouth; candy mold ears; hot tea strainer earring

"Tinman Davis" - Folger's can body;
Davis biscuit cutter head; oil can hat;
measuring spoon arms; spool legs

A New Year

Bunny reporting... With 2009 behind us, we are taking the month of January to relax at home and ponder what lies ahead for 2010.  Rabbit is getting new eyes this month.  Getting Crystalens put in both eyes.  One eye is done and the next one will be done in a few weeks.  He is so looking forward to being able to see without glasses. 
Got the news this week that Rabbit's oldest offspring and her Marine hubby will be moving back to Texas from North Carolina. YAY! They will only be four hours away in Amarillo!!  We are so excited. 
For the next few weeks we will be featuring items that I created as Christmas presents.  All items are found object assemblage.  I got on a role and couldn't stop.  I'll start off the reaveal with "Hunter" and "Big Cheese".

"Hunter" - Old lantern (light bulb turned around for face),
the horns are an antique drawer handle, legs are door stops,

and the tail is a bbq sauce brush.

"Big Cheese" - Cheese grater body, metal kitchen timer head,
biscuit cutter face, spoon ears, cookie mold feet,
and oil can tail.
