Since I was a kid, I have made figurines from found objects: shells, stones, twigs, wire, and wood. A few years ago, while wrapped in a sleeping bag in Geronimo Cave in the Superstition Wilderness near Phoenix, Arizona, I made “Avi” for a dear friend.
This evening I hosted a figurine party. We assembled just before sunset to gather shells, stones, and sand from the Muizenberg beach. A few pizzas, bottles of wine, and tubes of superglue.
This is what transpired.
