I love circles. They inspire me. Perfectly symmetrical circles or less perfect drawn by hand ellipses, all are beautiful, I am not biased. I love many things that are circles from polka dots, which make happy, to clocks that simply make me feel good. I have enjoyed clocks since I was a child. I believe my appreciation came from my grandfather who worked on clocks. The workmanship that went into building a clock intrigued me, all those gears working together in unison was amazing.
Last week I shared a part of my collection of found objects. I thought this week I would share one of my pieces involving found objects and my love for circles and clocks. I called it Time Travel. I used 2 very different found objects in this piece, an old disc from my grandmother’s meat grinder and a fan cover off an old cpu that my son and I chopped up for parts. These 2 items are decades apart in age and add to the time travel theme, though they both involve the wonderful circle.
The circle. It’s timeless. Never ending. Infinite.
