I’ve been lucky that free materials have come to me over the past months, as I’ve been preparing for my A.I.R. show.

These include:

Podium to display a book, lent by Sarah Granett‘s aunt and uncle. I love this photo. They were using it as a hose rack.

.

Styrofoam pellets collected by Chris Manzione. He is making foam sculptures and generating bags and bags of this waste, which is just perfect for beanbag chair filling.

.

These are just a few of the dozens of phone books I’ve received through Freecycle, friends, and strangers. (I’ve been using them for collage material.)

.

Frames from MFTA (free) and the Goodwill Store (very cheap). Instead of custom framing, I’m buying secondhand and stripping them of paint, so they will all have a natural wood finish but with different styles. I’ve been able to find frames for all but one oddly-sized piece. For just that one, I will order new.

.

At Goodwill I also found this walrus with dandelions embroidered on burlap…no relation to the show.
