Gleaning at the City Dump #24
I've completed a new assemblage-box piece with all materials (except for a few screws, wood glue and alcohol dye) gleaned from the Metro Transfer Station...the city dump here in Portland, OR. The box was constructed from wood, originally used in a platform bed as a support for the mattress. I "think" the rusted metal comes from an old grill that I found in hidden in the "metal section" of the bay...this section is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to find amazing metal treasures of all kinds. The foot pedal is one of three that I salvaged from the grand piano that was off-loaded a couple weeks ago. This piece is covered with glass...I love to "enshrine" my treasures in such a way. It's one of my favorite boxes, but it seems that the most recent piece that I've finished is almost always my "favorite."
