1960s red vintage Samsonite collage suitcase collaged with papers from Klimt calender. Vintage lace trims, acrylic paint, glitter used. The inside is not finished because it is in prefect condition.

This case has no trim and therefore could be used as luggage for planes.

Catherine Reinke RECYCLED ARTIST
All my recycled suitcases are OOAK one of a kind . Most can be can be used on an airplane or as a carry on. They are created as works of art however. Use my suitcases as STORAGE , for DVD's, books, special clothes, treasures, and place them around your room like a piece of furniture.

I rarely will reuse an image in one of my works. I tend to cut right from the magazine or book, giving my work more uniqueness and value. I do not use digital images.
