Corbel project......

I really wanted to use these corbels in a way to showcase them and display their simplicity without altering them too much.....I think vintage painted wood objects become works of art after generations of weathering and wear. I would love to know where these came from, but it is rare to be able to get the history of the things we buy and sell.

I have wired it to hang either way........can't decide which way I like it best......depends on the wall I guess. I also can't decide if I should put something in the middle, but I should have it figured out by the time I take it to Lakewood in a few weeks.

Family photo charms

(Mom, I know you aren't going to like this picture of you, but I love it!!)

I like all the different things artists do with the soldered charms, but I'm partial to using family photos. I burnished this one dark, and covered it with clear nail polish to preserve the finish.
