About

I RESCUE anything abandoned that has been deemed to have no value and is destined for an ignoble end. In my mind and in my hands they come alive again as a new work of art or treasure. I journey to job sites, garage sales, sidewalks on trash day. The treasures cry out to me. I have a lifelong passion for unusual vintage objects and ephemera. I am sure I will continue to collect and rescue until I set sail on my last journey. But as of now I am content to create a new journey every day . As C.P. Cavafy wrote so beautifully so many years ago:

When you start on your journey ,
Then pray that the road is long,
That the summer mornings are many,
That you will enter ports seen for the first time With such pleasure, with such joy!
