Take a vintage wooden cigar mold, add a great brass? iron? decorative thing that was part of something else at some point in time, include an antique microphone part and old calipers...and then what do you have? An assemblage. This measures 14" high and 13" at its widest.

People enter our lives for many different reasons and due to various circumstances. Many we stay involved with on some sort of consistent basis - again for different reasons and various circumstances. Some exit quickly, often because the acquaintance failed to excite one or both but the parting does not create feelings of loss. Some exit after a longer term relationship, often for complex reasons and circumstances. These partings can be bittersweet, leaving one with mixed feelings of relief, sadness and longing.
