The inspiration of this piece came from the red-brass screws. They were harvested out of an old boat by my dear friend Patti's dad and she gave them to me to work with. I love the fact that they are flat head as well as the amazing patina and wear on each one. I used a foundry pattern as my background, drilled the holes and screwed in each one, making sure they all felt different in length and angle. The quote is housed in a brass washer with the most incredible patina. I really enjoyed making this piece.
