Reclaimed Series-WIP -The Shadow Box

With the help of Ken, I was able to build a shadow box for one of the Reclaimed series projects- the crown of the collection. A 1890-1920? era German Stradivarius copy. Beautiful; full of character and signs of being well loved & played. The shadow box is covered in red silk on the inside; the corners filled with re-purposed gold rope from Crown Royal bags. The background is a piece of antique tin ceiling, salvaged from a building renovation in Petoskey, with character all its own. Its looking good so far….I cannot wait to mount it.

I find that I am reclaiming MYSELF as I work on these projects; truly refreshing. Lexi is a huge catalyst for my art. I cant thank her enough.16722856_1849487195318261_855327254714157614_o
