Dance while you can
Assemblage of found objects
20 cm high, 30 cm diameter
Dale Copeland

Years ago, a friend gave me the heavy wreath of flowers.
I knew they'd find their place sometime - it took a long time.
The cast glass nude was, I think, some sort of carnival prize. Again, a gift from a friend.
I spent hours carefully sanding a wooden curtain ring until it was a secure fit around the base of the figure,
So I could attach it with copper wires to the rotating base.

And now it has become the ethic 'dance while you can; smell the roses while you may'.

Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
