Time Makes All Things Clear

Back in October, I bought several boxes of vintage goodies from my friend Jami, also an avid collector of stuff (click HERE to see the post and photos of the treasures). Jami didn't want to be paid in cash, but rather in Curious Elements. She had carefully set aside some of her favorite found objects and asked that I create a series of Curious Elements for her. I've been working on Jami's pieces alongside the dozens I created for various holiday shows. Today I gave Jami her Curious Elements so I can now post photos of what I created. Here's the whole gang of Curious Elements that are now residing with Jami:

Individual photos of all eight of the pieces.

Jami's leftover bits that I wasn't able to incorporate into Curious Elements.

Today, when my Salem Art Group met for our December gathering, I handed Jami her box of Curious Elements and we all got to watch her open the eight little gifts.

dayna, these are terrific! again i am surprised by the simplicity of each piece, and the ease and beauty with which you assemble them.

did you title them? (i don't know why but i just love it when i can see what an artist titles each piece, to me it's like the artist is saying, here it is, world . . . is that silly?)

anyway, they are great,thanks for posting them. I am sure Jami loves them!

Love then all but I have to say the one with the key has stolen my heart! Wishing you all the best for the season. Tight hugs.

Dayna! Yes- I absolutely love them. I was able to hang them along with the piece I bought from you during the studio tour. Haven't taken a photo yet- but I will. Thanks again- and I so very appreciate you finishing them when you already had three shows to make pieces for- so thanks again! A lovely Christmas for me indeed.
