Custom Guardians for Hospital and Research Centers
These pieces were created out of salvaged materials including bone from meat processing plants for the carved fish, metal from rusting turbine blades, railroad nails, old game pieces, woolen milll spools and broken furniture casters.
I have been working in the schools for nearly thirty years. I believe all children are creative and need an opportunity to explore the arts. I use recycled materials and believe it is important to teach our children to walk gently on the earth and to repurpose things we know longer need.
