Old Friends Sat on a Park Bench Like Bookends
19” (d) x 24” (w) x 32” (h)
metal, wood, plastic

This piece began with the large black metal part from an old 1900 Glencoe oil cook stove – complete with the “pot head” of the guy on the left. As the two figures emerged sitting side by side, I heard the Simon and Garfunkel song “Bookends” playing on my old boom box. I provided them a bench, a book, some ice tray dividers for spines, some dials to represent the passage of time – and “Old Friends” was complete.
