This Friday: Knox Heritage Salvage Show

3 Apr
I’m happy to be a part of Knox Heritage’s second annual Salvage Show, conceived and curated by the lovely Beth Meadows, whose paintings make me foam at the mouth in an oh-man-I-want-that-so-bad kind of way.  The idea is that Knoxville designers and artists take architectural salvage that Knox Heritage has collected from historic buildings in Knoxville and with it create functional design pieces for display and sale.
This round, I decided to do something quite different from the herb diagram I did last year.  I found a curved piece of wrought iron that I decided to turn into an archery-themed mobile with handmade feathers.  I made it weeks ago, but just realized that the piece’s debut is timed almost perfectly with the release of The Hunger Games.
