Pluck the strings of my heart
Assemblage of found objects in old ukulele body, 2016
chopsticks, carved bone flower, watch & clock faces
250 x 170 X 70 mm
Dale Copeland

The broken ukulele body was very flimsy, but a lovely shape.
Given a new life with sheet copper and brass, it became a good home for this carved pansy.
Made of bone or ivory, supported with gold, it's a lovely thing but ... what to do with it?
Sitting with chopsticks and clocks, it seemed right.

Dale's studio can be found on Surf Highway, Taranaki, New Zealand
