Celestial Treasure Box
1999
linoleum mosaic
18"x24"
Long before thoughts of origami mosaics entered my mind, there were works of linoleum, which bring memories of childhood and are warmer than ceramic and cut-able on a scroll-saw. This box reminds me of long afternoons at the California Academy of Sciences, often ending with a celestial presentation in the Planetarium. Colors and textures reflect a rare retro collection of tiles culled from a SF vintage tile location that no longer exists near Harvey Milk Park. Best used for notes, poems and pictures Circles, orbits, cosmic threads collide and eclipse each other.
