great idea to take metal springs for mounting!
Well, bones are not my favorite adornment, but I can imagine these as a fast-selling item for men´s gift!

...love your disaster-work table!

Kind of cool, except I find the pig bone a bit gross.

Paula, you have a sure touch. I see you making things that people can like and use, yet staying true to your own creative instinct. Not giving way to the easy, sweet, or sentimental in hopes of popularity.

Your work table is great! Reminds me of my grandfather's work shop: out of chaos comes order.

The bone and metal pendant is my favourite ever! The photograph is pretty good too. I showed the safety snap to my man because I remember seeing them lying around and you won't believe it, but he threw them out. If I find any more I will mail them to you Paula.

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…
