Adaptive Misuse and Found Objects

I coined the term "Adaptive Misuse" to convey the possibility of old objects or materials enjoying a new life.

An incurable flea market scavenger, I trawl the world's antique shows, garage and yard sales, architectural salvage warehouses, estate sales, and junkyards in search of items with "good bones" on which I can impose an imaginative new purpose. My "finds" provide the raw material for these playful flights of fancy.  Adding whimsy and quirky-ness where they land, they are also sustainable design, as no new materials are being used, and something of the past is being preserved.

A dentist’s tool cabinet,stripped of paint and sealed is used to organize kitchen utensils, the bumper from an old truck headlights re-wired, hangs above a boy's bed lighting the room and the artwork on the opposite wall, a four-foot diameter French enamel clock face crowds the end wall of a small powder room.  The hands are outfitted with hooks for towels. The dramatic and unexpected change of scale, and the towels “melting” on the hooks is reminiscent of Salvador Dali.
