Self-Reliquary #1
copper, nickel, sterling silver, hair & tooth
3 2/4 x 2 3/4 x 1/4 in.

My work shows up randomly in my mind, never premeditated…and comes about as the result of dreams, found street-treasure, my show business heritage and random doodles while talking on the telephone.

Like the magpie, I hoard broken heirlooms and shiny objects, and merge them with childhood memories in the hopes of preserving a small piece of myself for posterity.
