"Diagonal Two Hooked Hanger" by Jennifer Hart. 6.5" x 11.5" made from a Walnut substrate, glass tiles, metal, safety chain. This piece with its two hooks is intended to be functional while also being an art piece. The hooks are repurposed and will help you never lose your keys, scarf, or hat ever again. For fun, the hanger is an old door security chain. The flat square metal pieces on the right edge are just cool, but I will admit I have no idea what they were in their previous life. I have been using 1" thick walnut wood scrap as one of my substrates for several years. This wood is not necessarily square or even and it may have pencil or paint marks or some remaining bark, this all adds to the character of the piece. This piece has blue paint on the bottom edge. Any special care instructions: Interior Use Only
I embrace reduce/reuse/recycle/repurpose in my personal life and my artwork. I want to see and use things in a new way. Scrap wood with its knots, nail holes, bark, old paint, and myriad of imperfections is a true treasure not to be tossed aside. Old cabinet doors are a perfect slate and as an added bonus their angles are usually pretty square. One of my most recent finds was a Made in Oregon cutting board with all its knife marks and faded logo. I had to have it and immediately used it for my piece Soft Pink. I love the hunt and scraping the bottom of the bin or bucket for that interesting piece of metal of which I have no idea of its original purpose, but I see shape, texture, color, and possibility. Miscellaneous metal, rusty old hardware, nuts, bolts, chains, wire, hinges, deadbolts, screws, nails, and washers, Oh my! And then there is glass, pottery, tile, china, beads, bobbles, and old jewelry. The possibilities are endless and every piece is unique.
