Comet Found, ©1987, 2-3/8 x 3-1/2 x 1-7/8 inches, brass, watch parts, formica, bound objects, fabricated. The title, and the text inside this book came from an article in the science section of the San Jose Mercury News titled "comet found to have heart of darkness." There is a blog entry about using found text here. Not for Sale. Scroll down for more views.

Here you see the comet, I envisioned space as a river of stars, flowing from the mouth of a fish, the source of all life. You can see the back of the formica pages in this view, when it's sanded and polished a bit it takes on a nice warm glow.

Because of the layers of brass, I wasn't worried about having rivets show through to the back of the page. So I was able to use the formica in a single layer.
