TODAY’S WORK

1-back

The back plane of this piece started with a sample sheet featuring different patterns and colors of marble that a company offered.  A designer gave it to me after it was out of date.  Imagine all the out of date samples in the world and what they could make?   Where do they go?

Once,  conversing with some salesgirls at a tile outlet, they implied that a smart person would look in their dumpster.  They had a boss from hell.  He would have never stood for anybody diving that dumpster.  I felt like Nancy Drew (minus the fine convertible that she drove).  Those samples stood me in good stead for quite a while.

See that rope style tile in the image above?  That and a couple of the others on this back of my new piece are from that dive.

  1. My friend and I used to go dumpster diving all the time for marble, granite and tile. We called ourselves the daring dumpster diving divas. Nice work you’ve done with the salvaged tiles.
