Silver Tones


I have been pretty stubborn about keeping to a limited palette. Dark wood, brass or gold, rusted machine parts and natural elements. This gives my Foundlings an old, antique feel. I have, of late, started to branch out to silver. Starting with a Foundling that I made for Marie, I made a Foundling in silver, as silver is "our color". This was to be the only one and yet, silver is starting to exert its pull.


My friend Meryl gave me a lot of black and silver hardware recently that has my aesthetic thoughts spinning. Sometimes these new silver pieces still look antique to my eye and sometimes these silver Foundlings start to look almost modern. I have even mused about adding a day-glow tone as an accent or perhaps a light oak box with black pieces. In this Foundling, the silver is still antique. Using a very personal, and very silver focal point, the Foundling almost built itself.
