21 January 2013 This little Foundling, coming together rather quickly, really touched me. Being so little and so quirky, it really reminded me of my niece so I named it after her. My intension wasn't to set out to make her a Foundling but rather, this piece, as it came together, just consistently said "Raina" to me. It is as if these pieces have almost a mind of their own. I have learned to listen to where these want to go. There isn't any "nature" in this piece so my initial concern was that these would look too industrial. It is, after all, the organic components that soften these up. Something, in spite of all of the metal machine parts, transcended the cold quality of its parts and made for a very intimate little work.
