It Comes in Waves

It Comes in Waves 
by Kimberly Rogers


I made this found object assemblage in response to the earthquake in Japan.
The news of the devastation and impending effects of the nuclear disaster
is hitting me in waves.

Made with pieces of rust, a discarded squeeze tube, Japanese postal ephemera,
antique porcelain doll arm and button.
a mounted on a composite stone backing and framed in a used discarded frame of linen and wood.

I am offering this piece for $100
All proceeds not including shipping will go to a Japanese  Earthquake relief fund of your choice.
I'll calculate shipping depending on where it's headed.
estimated minimum of $20

Thanks, Kim
