Reclaimed Wood Assemblage Art Piece

I have completed my first assemblage piece for FindersKeepers which can now purchased at my Etsy shop here! There will be more to come soon. This piece is made completely out of reclaimed wood. Each piece has been sanded and oiled with a natural oil to bring out the beauty of the color and wood grain. Here are a few photos of it!

New artwork in progress

The past several years I've been creating a lot of collage and assemblage artworks. I love finding small treasures and discarded objects and incorporating them into my artwork. A few years ago I started creating assemblages out of discarded wood. I just love finding old weathered wood, even better if it has old text and paint on it! Here are a few I've created.

When I started FindersKeepers Designs, my intention was to create these in a smaller scale, a more mail and budget friendly size so they could be purchased in my shop. Instead I started creating pillows and got pretty busy making them. Well last weekend I finally started work on my first wood assemblage piece for FindersKeepers and I'm pretty excited about it! I'm hoping to finish the first one this weekend. Once completed I will be taking photos and posting them here. It will be for sale in my Etsy shop and there will be more to come! So in addition to pillows FindersKeepers will soon be selling wall art pieces made almost entirely of recycled/found materials. Check back soon for photos!
