ithaka ephemera collages are handmade using vintage books, maps, scraps, photographs, magazines and other reclaimed paper sources, and placed on items scavenged from thrift shops, office supply clearance tables, and the like. Unduplicated and unduplicat-able, clever and quirky, each stands alone as a small multimedia artwork.
- "Leave a Trail" $20 (gift box, 5.5" x 7.5" x 1”) Kraft-type recycled paperboard gift box for jewelry or a small book. Made from images taken from a calendar, encyclopedia, paper sample, and book of yoga-style aphorisms.
- "Divorcée" $70 (wood with sawtooth hanger, 8-1/2 x 6-1/2") Made from images taken from a calendar of 20th century seed advertisements, a grammar, book of 18th century European dress, galaxy calendar, mirror tiles from a craft store, and plastic bling gems from old holiday cards.
- "Shaved" $80 (free-standing 3D sculpture, 6" x 5" x 1-1/2”) Made from images taken from a book about human physiology; da Vinci sketches; a book about Washington state; a gardener's magazine; and a grammar. The collage is built on a piece of wood that I scavenged from a free pile in front of the art studio at my alma mater, Marylhurst University.
