“For years I have been collecting and stockpiling bits and pieces of discarded funky rubble from SCRAP in San Francisco, Urban Ore in Berkeley and garage sales and flea markets everywhere. I intended to make it all into Great Assemblage Art, but I’m primarily a glass artist and never quite got around to experimenting with other art forms using the cool found stuff . Ken’s recycled hubcap theme spoke to me and gave me an interesting new direction: incorporating my flame worked glass into multi-media art projects. A lot of my designs evolve in progress and the stockpile of recycled components will be a great inspiration and Funky Factor resource, and add a bit of cultural history to each piece I make. Thanks for the kick start, Ken!”Sharon Peters
