First came the flowers, buds of buttons growing in the Atlanta summer. Bouquets are the work of hands, hearts and minds. Phlox has discovered just who are gathering and arranging those stems to perfection: Button People!

Atlanta Bicycle Chic

Among the many treasures Mr. Phlox has found for my small works, his outworn bicycle brake shoe found a new purpose as a rubber stamp in a design for a business card.

Art-o-mat Bits and Boxes

Yesterday morning Mr. Phlox swept the streets of Midtown Atlanta for metal bits. What a haul! These choice treasures await assembly and will travel with their fellows in cellophane to the swap meet. See you there!

Art-o-mat Works In Production

Greetings from the new studio, where I'm busy boxing baubles for the Art-o-mat® 15th Anniversary Swap Meet. Even if you can't attend, follow this link to find the machine nearest you. Here in Atlanta, the folks at WonderRoot keep one in their space on Memorial Drive. At five bucks a pop, arts patronage has never been so accessible and your new treasure comes with a provenance of elbow grease that once was the stuff of dive bars and gas stations.
