My JUNK List

I am hoping that those of you who read my blog can help me locate some items that I need to create some pieces for the studio. Unfortunately I recently cleaned out the garage and the storage room and recycled some stuff that I wish I had kept.

But that's always the case isn't it?

In fact there are several people in the area who drop off the most random stuff to me in hopes I might be able to use it. To them I say : THANK YOU! I use the most random stuff all the time in the studio!

So here's the list:
bicycle tires- any size- with or without tubes- doesn't matter
plaster or ceramic statues of people- can be full body or a bust- any condition too- in fact broken limbs, chipped noses would be totally acceptable                                        


Venus De Milo would be awesome!
as would cherubs or cherubjust a bust of a woman on a pedestal!

Paintbrushes that are beyond using- the big ones like you would paint a house with- not artist's brushes

and as always- feel free to drop off wine corks, interesting empty glass bottles, bits of yarn or anything else you think Laura might be able to use- you just never know. And if I personally can't use it my students will more than likely be able to use it.

Everything I am looking for is stuff that you would throw away. Or should throw away you just haven't gotten around to it. So check your basement, garage and storage shed. I really need some junk! I promise I will post pictures of what I do with the items I find.
