art in a box


being a collector of things {knick-knacks, doo-dads, trinkets, ephemera, rocks…}

a delightful discovery was the artist joseph cornell

he was a collector extraordinaire!

& he made nifty art boxes & collages…



his pieces are now sought after by collectors & museums ~

but this self-taught artist (comme moi!)

made them for friends & acquaintances


there’s a lovely “book” that explores his creativity 

the joseph cornell box: found objects, magical worlds
