Once, while walking through a wood

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

this brooch was inspired by an odd find. While pumping gas, I noticed something on the ground. It was some gansta’s grill he had lost. In my metals studio this became a picket fence of sorts in a landscape. Bezel wrapped mother of pearl, brass splash from a lost wax casting, aluminum spill spike and a bezel set stone remind me of a nighttime walk in a strange forest.

    I really like this piece by my friend Jane Case Vickers. She and I have made a lot of art together over the years. We both like to work with found objects, sometimes coveting each other’s great finds. This piece wonderfully incorporates one of her fun finds: a gangsta grill she spotted on the ground while pumping gas.
