Hi Neighbor!

In garbage picking the other day (totally normal!), I stumbled on a Narragansett Beer bottle cap.

Hmm… I am selling my wares off the Narragansett sea wall and these bottle caps have ‘Gansett  written on them… hmmm…what can I make out of these???

So I made a few necklaces and a bracelet to try out tonight.  Let’s see if anyone finds these cool or wonders why I strung some garbage on a chain and tried to sell it ;)

DRIFTWOOD SCULPTURES

fish-1

My husband has this vacant office that he is stuck in a lease with, until May.  It’s loaded with computer equipment for his business, but other than that, it is HUGE, well lit and warm. I’ve been the artist squatting in residence for some time now.

I mention this because I am sure all his techie computer guys are just thrilled.  The past three weeks they have heard BANG, BANG, BANG from my hammer.  Then there’s the saw dust flying from my saws and to top it off the smell of burning wood from my drills.  Sowwy guys I SWEAR, IT’S IN THE NAME OF ART!  ;)

The above fish are quite large.  They range from 3-4 feet.

I’m also working on these wall hangings, shadow boxes and sculptures.  Each of them are still incomplete.  I am going to add pottery elements to each of them to make them more personal.

It feels good to finally put a dent in that driftwood collection! I’m feeling organized and off to a good start.
