My husband and I recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary. When I looked up the traditional gift for a fifth wedding anniversary I discovered that it's wood. What a lucky coincidence that I was reading one of my favorite blogs and saw a piece of art for sale that is made from wood!
It's a beautiful piece of art from Tammy Smith (her etsy shop, her blog), whose gritty style I just adore! And it's huge! Almost three feet tall and even better in person than in the photos above (both are photos Tammy took of the piece).
Here's what she wrote about the piece:
The businessman paces in his cubicle, feeling like a cog in the machine. Tiny sprouts of wings are just starting to show on his back-the question remains if he will fly free one day. Mixed media with clay, found metal gears, padlock, wire on found wood-14" x 31".
I saw it and loved it and just felt that it was perfect for my husband. You may recall that I mentioned that he started his own law firm at the beginning of this year. And he is definitely now soaring free of the cage! I have to confess to being rather prodigiously proud of him.
Plus, I love being able to support a fellow artist when I need to give a present. Be sure to check out Tammy's etsy shop and blog for lots more eye candy (I particularly love this piece of hers)
Thanks for stopping by!
