Pairing Up

I've been working on paired objects for awhile, and recently have started to put wire mountings on them and hang them up on the wall so that I can see how they look arranged in groups.

The first group (see below) is pairs that include a wooden shoe (or shoe last or stretcher) along with a figure made with wood and found objects. Someone visiting the studio asked, "Why are those two things together?" I guess it's the same reason people pair up: They're attracted to each other!

The next group I'm working on is garden shears and loppers paired with figures that have the same splayed posture as the tools with which they're paired.

I love these! And I am so happy to be paired with you. Perhaps better that Gok didn't have to deal with the disappointment of this utterly unremarkable day. I think she may have been quite miffed.
