I came across this artist on Friday, Mari Andrews. I really love her installations of the things she collects. It is similar to something I have recently started. I have started collecting old boxes that can be used to display miniatures and such. I have a few displayed in my house now. I use the smaller cubby holes or shelves in the boxes to display objects I have found and been collecting for a few years. So far it is mostly found objects from nature, such as fossils, pods, seeds, shells, and anything that has cool patterns, markings or perfect organic shapes. Although I will eventually have a series of found objects that are man made as well.
Anyway, Enjoy Mari Andrews. http://www.mariandrews.com/index.html
