This is a mixed media piece I made for a show called Boxed In! It is a vintage metal lunch kit from some stuff found in an old house.
I painted, spackled, and added image transfers inside and out. Inside there is a book made from handmade construction paper. It is filled with memorabilia from my first grade year.
I put in some schoolyard games too, Chinese skipping rope, skipping songs, and marbles. It was fun to make. I hope it gets picked for the exhibit.
I made a new lamp with cane and the palm fibre I got in the Amazon from the women of the Huitoto tribe. I was going for a sculptural look but the one in my mind was not the one I produced.
I finally figured out how to weave with basketry techniques on the new bases. I will make more along this line. I’m excited to be able to weave with this material again for lamps. It makes such nice shadows.
