My dreams are the color of rust
Sepia tones of things from days gone by
Rusty pipes and brass tinged with the ages, things once useful now forgotten
Refind into new and beautiful
My treasures are covered in dust
Found in bins and trays and hidden places
Discarded glass in hues of blue and green
To be Refind into visions of light
Inspired by things layered in crust
Bark, cones, flowers and leaves
Fallen to the floor of the forest, washed up on a beach or piled in a junk store
Refind into creations uniquely beautiful
Refind is a play on the word Refined. It is how I intend to refind my passion for creativity. To take found objects and refind them by refining their features…making something new out of something discarded or no longer useful.
I am intrigued by the work of artisans who refind objects, and I am currently inspired by old things like keys, door knob plates, rusty things, glass door knobs, old wood, ancient berry farm flats and boxes, and things made of metal. I have projects dancing in my head as I refind my passion for crafting, designing, and enjoying things made by hand and rudimentary tools.
I am Refind.
