works in progress 2

the fourth book/object for the June gallery show is now finished.

finally all clicked last night when i got the idea to make a featherduster which fills up the space in the bell jar nicely as well as being symbolic of the domestic role of women at the time and because Williamina Fleming was Pickering's maid before he hired her to catalog stars.

and yes that is an actual 1891 Liberty Seated Quarter which i got at the coin shop downtown on thursday.
