Martha Stewart Living

An article featuring items from my collection appeared in the October 2001 issue of Martha Stewart Living. I was told that Martha appreciates antiques with inventive repairsĀ and was quite pleased with the article. The gorgeous photographs were taken by Maria Robledo; Thomas Hine wrote the text and the story was created by Brian Andriola, Fritz Karch and Alexa Mulvihill. Look closely at the images below to see examples from my collection…

  1. I remember the article. It caught my attention because an antique dealer friend had once shown me a platter with staples in it. He taught my eye to appreciate such repairs and I have been forever thankful to him for that.

  2. just found your repaired objects article, nice. I’m a contemporary jewellery designer and sculptor working in eastern Australia, Brisbane Queensland and Tunbridge Tasmania. I’m currently working on a show (a response to colonial tinkers and tinsmiths) . . . my husband and collaborator, Malcolm Enright is a designer and life long collector of too many numerous catagories BUT I’ve raided his colonial hand-mades as part of my research and have some “repaired” items that we would love to share with you.
    We will post to our second blog and link to your blog in the near future.
