Found objects

As you probably know there is a whole approach to art that uses "found objects".

I'm going to add features to my ceramic building using "found objects".

For example, I'll want railings outside most of the windows. So, what objects could I find that I could use to suggest railings? I haven't done any serious looking yet, but one possibility that springs to my mind is those plastic hair clasps that one occasionally sees.

In the sketch below, I haven't been able to rotate the "clasp" to the horizontal so it looks a bit wonky. But, I hope you get the idea.

 
I think it's highly unlikely that I will use hair-clasps but perhaps you can see the potential in the "found objects" approach.

Today's music:

the commercial radio station (I think it's either Real Radio or Radio Clyde) that plays non-stop in the office. It plays a mixture of up to the minute pop songs interspersed with songs from 3 or 4 years ago. I really enjoy it. There is vastly less chatter than on Radio 1.

Last night's dinner:

self evident
An example of the new policy of smaller portions.

Unfortunately, ate a Fry's Cream after it.
