My O. K.

my O.K. ©2013, 3.25 x 3.75 x .75 inches Brass, copper, fabricated, rolling mill textures, heat and chemical patinas. This book is made from scraps left over from other projects. All parts were waxed as the book was assembled. I keep a lot of scraps, they always interest me because of their negative shapes. I have always taken a break from larger projects to make these relatively quick things. It's a good way to play around and relax a bit when I feel I'm getting too tight and compulsive. Or when being tight and compulsive starts to get to me.

The other side. There is a slight narrative in the book, but it's more dreamy than literal.
