“Abdication of the Sylvan Beauty Queen on the Occasion of Her Epiphany” — TVAA Exhibition on Collaboration”Four Eyes – An Optical Collusion”

By | Everything Else, Exhibitions, Surface Pattern Design

This was a collaborative piece with artist, Barbara Bowling who created a tiara, while I created a sash and a painted box with an etched mirror to display both the tiara and sash.

This is me modeling the tiara and sash:

And this is the painted box with the etched mirror which says “Forma Fugit” which means “Beauty is Fleeting.”

These are detail photos of the sash:

Here is the piece on display in the offices of Boise State Public Radio where the exhibition was held:

Gee’s Bend Jewelry Box

By | Surface Pattern Design

This jewelry box started out as a second-hand find with the feel of a shop class project — just a touch heavy handed to be commercially produced, and perfect for my repurposing as a “Second Helping.”

Every surface is painted with acrylic paint in patterns from the Gee’s Bend Quilts.
