ARTIFACTS


SIMPLE ARTIFACTS
It takes being the Fool  to present sticks as art — given they were created by nature, not me.

But alas, I do love them and work with them -- sanding and saturating with beeswax and encaustic.

They are artifacts — "a simple object (as a tool or ornament) showing human workmanship or modification; a product of artistic endeavor."
