Why do Mixed Media artists always get excited about leftovers and unusual gargage. To be totally accurate, sometimes discarded materials aren't really garbage as is the case with this pile of cut out clay which will actually be recycled and used to make new objects. But for the moment this growing pile of hardened clay cut outs sits in the back of a gorgeous custom made tile store in Litchfield, CT. I strolled into the store lured by a fabulous window display of glazed functional pottery and custom tiles. However, I was equally excited to explore this heap of broken and left over pieces in the back corner of the shop. To a Mixed Media Artist who lives in possibility, the art is everywhere. So what would you do with these pieces? Stencils, Assemblage art, jewelry ? Feel free to post your ideas please.
