We filed it under “Shelf of Stuff”. We’ve got a couple of our own around the place, but the best spot is on the mantle:
…a slim catalogue from a long-ago Jean Arp exhibition, the surprisingly delicate tensile wishbone from a wild turkey our friend Kay shot, a morel (now dried) found on a walk up a mountain one spring day in West Virginia, a glass holding the fragile seed pod of a wild ramp, a tiny artwork a friend made…
“The weird, cool ass shit that doesn’t go anywhere else.”
We wished we’d photographed its iterations over the years because we gave some of that great stuff away and would like to remember it.
