Necessity is the Mother...

30 October 2020. As the pandemic drags on, many antique stores are closed, few garage sales have been found, and art shows canceled. Although I still have plenty of material to create with — without new “ingredients” to cast all of the existing pieces I have in a new light, I had to explore different ways of creating.


Over the years, I made a few pieces that I have not been satisfied with. They would just languish on a shelf for years with me not knowing what to do with them. I decided to either disassemble them for parts or see if I can continue working on them... years after they were first created.


In this piece “Study in Brown III”, I had the thought that the heavy clamp and bull nose grip would be lifted by a partial feather underneath. That was the concept. I still like this idea but as a Foundling, it just wasn’t successful. So instead of a concept, I just followed aesthetics.


Much better. Necessity must be the mother of invention.
