Welcome to Found Object Designs

My background

For many years I've been collecting ephemera and odd objects that have accumulated in my home in various piles and sometimes an actual vignette.  I began assembling these usually aesthetically connected items into collages, which has evolved into illuminated boxes.  I derive a great deal of satisfaction in connecting the disparate into harmony, uniting two entirely different things into something that suddenly has a natural logic.

What's new...

Lately I've returned to my "roots" and have resurrected some old designs that proved popular at JP Open Studios.  A trip to Brooklyn Restoration (see Resources page) provided some great distressed wood to play with.  I'm still mesmerized by the layers of paint, color combinations and the history of a  broken door from 1880, and hope its new function honors that!
