hustle and bustle

So I have been working away for my show in Sept. at Disjecta and I wanted to share some of my progress.  This is a reproduction Canfield bustle from 1887.  The last bustle to be advertised before they went out of fashion.  I used a line drawing to recreate this beautiful feat of engineering.  This bustle will be going under a lavish tea bag skirt that was made with over 1,400 used tea bags.  Many of them were donated from Tazo.

In another note, I have been posted again, this time on Treehugger.com. Wow!!   I am excited to spread the love.  And I am prepared.!!
