My heart leapt when I first saw this smashed, yellow metal thing a few weeks back. Initially, I wanted to make a winged angel, but when I placed it on the two ceiling tins, she looked totally natural and I had the perfect elbow for her to rest herself on. I toyed with adding a simple headboard and small feet to the bed, but removed everything – I like that she could be on a rug, or a mattress, or whatever. The other objects also came from Bobby Chenman’s scrap metal yard.

Wired and ready to hang.
