Scarlet Scandalvarius

11" x 23"

Stringless instrument #4.
The recent discovery of a 299 year old
Stradivarius violin (stolen and found stashed in an
attic) coincided with the construction of my            scandal-less scarlet sculpture.

As I work in my studio, I often listen to NPR broadcasts.  It was oddly inspirational to work on Scarlet as I caught this timely news-story last month. That news chatter then inspired me to view the older film, The Red Violin. Now there's some scandal!

 Materials include vintage red tabletop, baseball threading, shoehorn
... piano hammers, snap findings and more.
Where there's a scandal, there's jeopardy!
