“This is just a small part of my scissor collection. Before I was a painter, I made quilts and pillows out of vintage fabric and I fell in love with sewing supplies, mostly vintage ones. Scissors became part of that collection and then grew into its own. We make a rotating collection of mobiles to hang from our ceiling at Rare Device, and I once made one from my scissors. To me it was a beautiful object, but it was super controversial. People either loved it or were completely frightened by it and thought it was creepy.”
