Katie Thompson's Profile
Every day, when I look at the wild swans and sandhill cranes here at the Copper Swan Refuge, I think, "Really.. how can I possibly make anything that amazing?"
Usually, that's when I get bitten by a mosquito, and I go back into the studio to see what I can whip up.
Here are the ingredients we use: Handmade ceramic tile (I make it), copper, antique cabinets or drawers, wavy antique glass, Swarovski crystal, pearls, antique bobbins, and a dash of steampunk hardware. What's not to love?
The general theme: Beautiful, but also useful. A few examples:
... Abandoned 1903 hardware store drawers... turned into hipster dresser boxes.
... Dusty drawers from 1899 treadle sewing machine... turned into sweet jewelry boxes with antique bobbin legs…
