Secrets of the Stars
13" x 29" x 5"
This is half of a 1920’s travel suitcase. The focal point is a piece of metal (painted gold) found at Wilbur Hot Springs. It reminds me of a star. The colored fabric is the back of a vintage photo album from the 1900’s World’s Fair, complete with ornate clasp. (The front of the album I used in ‘Nostalgia’.) I finished the sides with Indian ribbon. Other ingredients include the wooden Asian top (that came in a big bag of treasures from a fellow artist), along with natural and metal oddities. The other half of this case I made into another piece a few years ago, called Time Traveler, which made its way to a patron’s home in New Mexico.
