Ordinary Treasures

Isn't it something how light and shadow can turn the ordinary into something extraordinary? These are the tools in my kitchen, in the pottery jar that holds them at the ready beside my stove. They are common, simple, utilitarian. But look what happens to them when they are given a chance to shine. This is what I love to do as an artist - have the viewer see something simple in a whole new way; a whole new light. I know that I for one, view these tools differently now when I see them in my kitchen. I am reminded of  their moment of glory.
