i've made more containers and storage thingies.  i'm loving making these.  the possibilities are endless when it comes to lid ideas.  i love using the old electrical parts for lids!  it just makes me feel giddy to find a use for stuff that even i thought was crap but knew to save.  i want more....i got these in vermont and only have a few left.  where to find those for free....

the brown box lids are made from an electrical panel someone gave me. i am especially fond of the writing on it  love that.  i fashioned the little handle by bending the metal ( i should know what that is called but i dont and i guess it isnt important).

i sure am having fun with these.  focusing on making more as well as more pendants for the howlidays.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…
