Some things

1″ diameter, found objects

Some things never change.  Like the fact that I like to collect tiny things and keep them.  I might not call them collections anymore, but I call them “art supplies”.  These bits of tile in the center of the pendant are pieces of tile that had been tossed and smoothed by the ocean in Uruguay. I collected them when I was 4, and here they are, finding a second or third life. I was thinking about change and childhood because this weekend will be my daughter’s bat mitzvah, when she’ll become, according to Jewish tradition, an adult.  I’m so curious to see what will stay the same and what will change as she grows.
