New Small Work

I've been working on a number of small scale pieces over the past couple of weeks. I primarily work in copper with some enamel fired onto the surface for color. Over the past year and a half I've also started including found objects that I've either collected or recently found at thrift stores. Seems I'm mostly attracted to brass and glass pieces. Some inspiring things have come off of Ebay, like a huge supply (277!) of antique porcelain doll legs from Germany that I recently bought. I enjoy working small at times because it allows experimentation versus my bigger pieces. All sorts of oddball things come out.
