Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Most of these knives were found when Chance took apart our kitchen drawers to fix them. Over the years they had fallen from the broken drawers and landed on the floor beneath. These knives belonged to the previous owners of our home. You might imagine the bad shape our drawers were in that a knife with a large handle could make its way to the floor, Everything in this piece is a found object.
The knives are suspended from an old child's bicycle rim I found along side the road in my travels along the back roads of the Las Vegas Valley. The chain as well was found in a box of discarded items. I painted the chain so that it blends with the rest of the piece.
Because the knives are sharp, and this piece could potentialy be dangerous to children we wish to sell this only to a home with adults in it. It should be hung with care so that no one would walk, sit or stand beneath it. Clearly, this is not a piece for just anyone. It requires a special home.
This is a large piece. It measures 4 Feet tall and is about 11 inches wide.
Chance and I do this as a team. I create the pieces that will be going on the mobile, tell him what I was thinking- and at that point it is out of my hands. He decides which of the pieces I have created will wind up being incorporated into the mobile. Then he puts the mobile together piece by piece, balancing as he goes. The piece is not finished until both of us are happy with the end result.
Please do look at the photos with the etsy zoom feature so that you can see the details.
Thank You for Looking :)
