Pocket Art

I’m overdue posting about this find. Back in the fall, I told you about my tiny art purchase from Artvendu, the art gallery in a vending machine that appeared at Nuit Blanche. The Northern Beaver Gallery vending machines made another appearance recently at the City of Craft sale, and I took the opportunity to add to my art collection.

The current series is comprised of three-dimensional Canadiana, created by Rebecca Houston. My two random purchases: on the left is a Raku-fired clay maple key, and on the right, an itsy-bitsy canoe sculpture (for scale, I’ve included a moose i.e. Canadian quarter).
