My Final Assemblage? – ‘Ahead of the Game’ #4
Back to my Roots
The winter is over, Spring finally here and big changes happening in the Cadle Studio. After much soul-searching and deliberation, I have decided to discontinue my adventure into assemblage making and return to my core interest in photography.
The studio is now being purged of all assemblage artefacts and room is being made for a new mini-studio where amongst other new projects further creations will be made in my Tiny People Series. There will be major changes online with the South Devon Photo Library and limited edition print sales being subsumed into my main website.
So, lots of work to do to get it all up and running quickly and smoothly but clearing the decks for a new photographic start feels very refreshing and with the sun shining brightly all day today it gives me added enthusiasm for the challenge ahead.
The Last Assemblage?
Mastermind of all indoor games, this chap knows all the rules, stored in his vault and very large brain! ‘Ahead of the Game’ #4 is likely to be the last assemblage and is beautifully housed in a heavy glass dome with a matching red base. The handmade ‘vault’ is supported on four upturned chess pieces for feet and displays definitions of Roulette, Bezique, Chess and Poker around the side panels which are made using original pages from a 1914 dictionary.
The collar is made from 10 counters from a 1930s French Lotto game above 15 dominoes. The head with turn 360 degrees in either direction so it can face out over any of the four sides or corners.
