I snapped this image as I was scouting fashion designer John Bartlett and master framer John Esty’s West Village apartment for print consideration for my book, The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects and Vintage Details.
Made out of four triangular terrazzo molds, the treasures held inside inspire the imagination: an old clock, a misplaced ruler, chair spindles, a paint brush and a rusty horseshoe thrown in for good luck.
Check out the Johns' work at Housing Works' Design on a Design Event on May 7. Visit www.shophousingworks.com for more info.
