Pipsqueak woodstove "weighs only maybe 40 lbs and sits upon its own cast iron base. It has a dial on the side for airflow and the whole thing is enameled a deep dynamic blue-teal color. It’s truly the tiniest stove I think you can get for human use. I went to our wood pile and picked out the smallest pieces I could. They didn’t fit. Actually only twigs were small enough." -- Casita Bella
Scraps of magic made from cardboard and string by James Castle (1899 – 1977). James Castle made art almost exclusively with found materials such as paper, packaging and mail. James Castle also made ink using soot from the woodstove and saliva, appyling it with tools like sticks and other found objects. A reminder that the materials are not important in making art, it is the imagination and creativity that is the vital ingredient.
