Announcement   AFTER TAKING A BREAK OVER THE SUMMER, THE BLIND PEACOCK IS BACK!! WE'LL BE LISTING SEVERAL ITEMS OVER THE COMING WEEKS!

This is a shop of industrial oddities and rare findings......rusty treasures of the mind's eye......….homemade veridgris torched gingerbread patinas.............ornate bobeche….. large Gothic skeleton keys.........homemade wood trays w 19th Century Apothecary pulls......…..antique padlocks……etc…………...

please take a look around and don't hesitate to ask any questions!......

Our little shop is more a state of mind.......a puzzle of nostalgic vibes, bringing us back to a time and place where pieces were made with pride and took time, and were well made....a time when people actually wrote emotional letters to each other...........sometimes It feels like society moves so exponentially fast and faster----- towards the newest, latest, best, most expensive trends/objects/endeavors/obsessions/addictions........that she becomes blind to her own beauty that............ is all present....everywhere........and has always been there and here.................all around us............

......these nuts and bolts, society's guts, industrial oddities, are the very treasures we search for......they appear all around us, sometimes we just need to look through a different lense, a new realty, an altered paradigm....
Items discarded as junk because they are weathered and withered are sometimes the true works of art we seek and use in our own creations.....


Gothic, unusual, bazarre, scarce architectural findings.............a balance of whimsy and gothic industrial strength.

The old stormy patinas and wear that form on the metal through rust, weather- time..................... old wear and tear of rusty dusty metal work well with restoration and assemblage/altered art/steampunk creations

Even though these treasures have already surfaced............they contain buried treasures deep within....it's just a matter of searching and finding but not interfering and distorting..........however, one must dig below the surface of rust and dust for the deepest layers of beauty and wonder.......




"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."
~Aristotle


"The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation."

~ Auguste Rodin


We are all on a journey, attached by the same thread of creativity and life. - Me


"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work."

~ Emile Zola

Take a look around and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions....enjoy!

About

The Blind Peacock - Feautring works from Industrial Woodlands

When I was about 8 years and old could finally take an airplane all by myself, (back in 1985), I would save my allowance to visit my Aunt Neuma in her antique mall on the east coast, Berkshires, Mass......it was a bulding that was one of the oldest factories in America, "The Buggy Whip Factory." The first time I stepped foot in that factory there was a cool old energy or vibe that crept through the pores of my skin, up my spine, tingled through my brain and never stopped giving me chills and excitement! I cannot stop thinking about vintage treasures and love being able to share with the etsy community!! This platform allows us to share our treasures with artists, collectors, restorers, etc. The Blind Peacock is a state of mind. The process, from the find to the listing, is our passion!
