Small Wonders at the Aspen Chapel.. I found the cool old match tin at a used store and knew it would be a great body for a dada. The owl just came in on her own. I used a rusty tin lid for the head, spotted the old barbwire and liked how it flowed off her head. Next the eyes, old lens from a camera, and an old gear wheel. (I always grab cheap or free cameras at yard sales to get these kind of parts.) And into my vision of junk, I spotted an old ink pen nib (?) and so appeared the owl. So next? Why wings of course. Those I cut from an old coffee can. Now feet, hmmm.. ahhh perfect... old caster wheels! I have a box of those so I chose the smallest ones I had. The empty slot for a nest and a touch of whimsey, a wooden red heart.
