Has your gran-ma's pock-et Bunch o' keys and mo-ney? Spool o' thread and thim-ble? Can-dy made o' ho-ney? (detail)
DESCRIPTION: This piece builds on my genealogical tree. Each "shelf" and riser is built from apiece of one of the chair parts that were owned by my family. The photographs are my ancestors, faces forever protected, and preserved with 23 karat gold because the memory of them became more powerful than the knowledge of who they really were. Each item on the shelves is also from the family hoard and represents a particular family members, all leading to one object, the important shooter.
