While studying math in college, I lived in a large communal artist compound with a constant stream of artists coming and going. I worked for a variety of artists, including ceramicist Beatrice Wood and sculptor George Rickey. I considered myself lucky to get an inside glimpse into their lives and see their passion for their work. My artistic path began when I purchased a fixer home and I wanted to create something beautiful on a limited budget. Though I was frequenting salvage yards for materials for the home improvement projects, I started collecting items that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need for the house. I just thought they were unusual and pretty cool.
