Homage and Continuum

Yesterday we went to an auction. A couple was moving to another country and needed to sell the contents of their home so I didn't feel as weird as I do when attending an estate auction. (Isn't it a bit unsettling to be purchasing the remnants of someone's life? I always have this feeling I am violating the person and try to pay reverence to that person even while winning something at a good price.) Anyhow, we bought 3 antique clocks at very reasonable prices...actually a bit too reasonable...but we will love and enjoy these clocks as much as their many previous owners have.

Pictured is an assemblage made from an altered antique box, antique nails, wooden gate image, brass found object, cobalt bottle, old wire and vintage watch part.
