In addition to making shadow boxes, I’ve also been making other assemblages. I’m drawn to old ceramic half dolls, formerly atop pincushions, brushes or powder jars. I’ve been pairing them with various containers, adding things here and there.

This is an old German half doll which I think works perfectly with this milk glass vanity jar.


I’ve also been pairing them with tins.

This was formerly the top to an old bubble gum machine. The ceramic baby powder shaker was still filled with powder.

I’ve also been making animal assemblages.

This dog has a little pig mixed in.
