I may be adding one more found object to this piece. Have to decide when enough is enough.
"Aerial of River"
Melted bottle glass in the tile represents a river. Wood piece is driftwood found along the Ohio River near Marietta.
Picture below shows the bottom of the piece with a sinker, also found near the river.
Much of the hardware you see on these pieces came with the found wood. Some, like the screws in the vertical piece of wood, are new but have been aged to get rid of the shiny silver look by soaking a few hours to overnight in white vinegar.
Click on the pics if you want to see them bigger.
Inspired by a poem by Becca J.R. Lachman submitted to Riverside Artists Gallery's Poetry in Art exhibit in 2014. A couple of other artists used the poem as inspiration for artwork for that show. I loved the poem and it stuck with me. The gallery will be doing another one of these exhibits with new poems and artwork this Sept.
