I like to make assemblages inside inexpensive 5 x 7 x1 inch plastic photo frames,by removing the cardboard insert that holds a photo against the front and replacing it with my own cardboard and images/stuff. The box, with its small size and depth focuses attention and allows me to investigate aspects I would not ordinarily appreciate. In this case I provided a special environment for a lucky find -a dead butterfly, gathered on a walk in the woods. I used copper wire to create skeletal remains of Queen Anne's Lace flowers, using the kitchen torch my son gave me to bead the wire ends. I had only used the torch for the odd creme brulee before this, and learned that torchwork really must be done on fireproof brick: I melted my cutting mat! Everything is a learning experience….Other techniques included are: sun print cyanotype, imprinted gesso, stenciled modeling paste and hand carved dragonfly stamp.
