Installations/sculpture > Touchstone, 2010

Touchstone, full view.
glass cake dish, pressed leaves, plaster dust, deconstructed textiles, and wax.
90" x 30" x 30"

Sculpture using glass cake dish, vintage leaves pressed by my Aunt Julie, stenciled with pounced plaster dust using my grandfather's pierced paper pattern, deconstructed lace sculpted with beeswax, suspended from a plexiglass disc. I found these leaves while clearing out 51 Downing Street, before it sold. They were tucked into "1003 Household Hints", copyright 1947.
