Tiny Present on Copper #5

I made this present for my friend, the visual poet Geof Huth. It's called "The Missing F" because the old dictionary I use for collage jumped from "geodidic" to "geognostic" - it jumped over any possibilities involving the "f" in his name. To add the missing "f," I hammered some fs into the copper using Peter's metal stamps, and then in a flaky moment, I covered most of them up with a piece of film. There's one lone "f" peeking out that I couldn't photograph. So the "f" is there and not. Collage items and encaustic on antique copper printing plate, 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" inches (I think), 2012.

Tiny Present on Copper #4

I made this little piece for my friend Lori Anderson Moseman's birthday. Her new book, All Steel (Flim Forum Press), is all about tools and work and ritual of respite from work. I liked how there is this ghost worker on the copper plate behind the collage. Encaustic and collage on vintage copper printing plate, 3.5" x 4", 2012.

Tiny Present on Copper #3

Our friend and neighbor, Rich Barley, poet and local historian extraordinaire, turns 62 today, so I spent some time in my studio making him a present. Over the weekend, Peter and I went to the Rhinebeck Car Show, and I bought a small plastic bag filled with these tiny brass gears. I ran my fingers over them all day. I was itching to use one. And I did. For Rich. Encaustic on paper, collage items and film on antique copper etching plate, 3 1/4" x 6 1/4", 2012
