XO Spoon

XO Spoon

15x1.5x.5

After recently prepping for a high school art student online workshop, I started playing with my beaded spoon samples as objects for further adornment. Fur, horsehair, and feathers found their way onto spoons. I re-imagined each piece as an object translating the energy of the natural world. My early love of Inuit, First Nation, and American Indian art, where the veil between Spirit and the material can be nebulous, was resurfacing. 

This unique sculpture was made from a re-purposed spoon. In the mid 1990s I was teaching high school students how to make mosaics in a summer arts program. After work one day I came home to my mother's house, raided her silverware drawer, and covered my first piece of flatware using beads in a mosaic process. Still focusing on mostly words, these pieces have become much more elaborate. All of the base flatware is purchased from thrift stores, bought as used on Ebay, or stolen from weddings...but that's another story. There is a loop on the back for hanging.
