This piece is a unique assemblage of vintage artifacts; a carved wood box lid was found at a thrift store, I've added several pieces of brass filigree, a re-purposed beaded earring, and a Buddha statue. This is a beautifully detailed shrine!
“May this piece of art be a subtle invitation to reflect on Love, Gratitude and your place in the Universe.”
Artist JoAnne Hunot has been designing and selling assemblage boxes created from vintage items for over 20 years at art shows in California. The last photo up above shows her studio which is full of stuff to make art with! This is up-cycling at its best! Since all figurines, frames and boxes are re-purposed from thrift stores, there might be small blemishes.
I also have an etsy store.
I have been collecting interesting artifacts since childhood. I LOVE old stuff! I visit flea markets and thrift stores looking for vintage items for my up-cycled art work. All of the frames, boxes, and drawers I use are re-purposed. I have been selling my work at California art shows for over 20 years.
