ANGEL'S FACE IS CREATED ON A SMALL PLATE


I am working on my masters and I had to create a personal project...since I love to garden and I love making art from found objects I created this garden totem. It is about 5 foot high and is made for an old lamp base, porch spindle and an old table leg. I painted it a lime green/ aqua color and attached old hardware, an face created on a plate and other objects that have meaning to me.
