Rituals and Reliquaries: Air Blower / Duster
Mixed on archival support
20 1/8" x 16 1/8" x 2 5/8"
Vintage air blower / duster. It was used to blow dust from intricate areas in watch repair. It operates by squeezing the bulb.

I used the green string on the bulb as the inspiration for the design. I thought of argyle patterns used in the 40's-50's.

Basswood strips, string, acrylic paint on museum archival hardboard and wood support.
