This is the work of Wes Cribb, a self-taught metalsmith and assemblage tinkerer.
I have been a thrift store addict since I was a teen and nearly everything here is made from my finds. Old movie projectors, discarded brass and copper decor, forgotten toys, broken clocks, watches, and more find new life as stand-alone assemblage art or jewelry. Through a lot of trial and error and fortunate accidents the result is, hopefully, surprising and interesting new objects from the detritus of the modern world.
* The phrase Maybe All This is from a poem by the Nobel Prize winning Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska. Her work is a constant source of comfort and inspiration.
