Why thanks, DRmeg.  Ship to Chicago?  No probs.

Henning, here's the orange clock in natural light (in my back yard, this very morning!).  This is one reason I don't do Etsy; I know my photos are desperately unprofessional.  Usually I'm scrambling to get everything done and packed right before a show, and I take the photos against an old gray tablecloth pinned to the backsplash of my kitchen counter.  What a hack.  :)

Those before and after photos are amazing. I love how you transform crap into amazing not-crap.

Thanks, bud.  I should put that on my business card!  I use some of the B&A photos as part of my display at shows.

Back in the saddle, in my glamorous basement studio.  I'm working on a plaid table for a plaid-themed show.

This might be my favorite piece in the show.  It's a box that apparently held a gift set of sommelier tools, judging from the foam liner that I removed.  It has one drawer and a lift-off lid, into which I cut a hole to insert a clock fitting that was left over from an abandoned project.

Men that age just don't appreciate turning garage sale finds into mosaics that are both beautiful and practical.

Thanks for the prompt, mindme.  I'm getting ready for the 2015 season, which opens in earnest this coming Saturday.

Here's a table I did for the 16th and Last Annual Plaid Show at a local church gallery.  They asked all the artists to label their works with noms de plaid.  Mine was G.O. Metrix-Tyler.  :)





It won third place!  But nobody bought it.  My mom is pleased with that, because she called dibs if it went unsold.

Here's a before 'n' after.  Odd little wooden coin bank, maybe six inches tall, in the form of an old-fashioned pump/well.  I sawed it down a bit and made it into a tzedakah box with the colors of the twelve tribes. :)

And here is a mildly terrifying "before."  I have plans for it.

Do they involve fire?
