      The Cymbals of Strength Logo

      The Cymbals of Strength Logo

      Designing a logo is a process of distilling a concept to its graphic essence. I love that challenge. The logo for my new Cymbals of Strength collection needed to be bold, powerful, and positive. 

      I thought about the Leonard Cohen lyric, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

      My work is inspired by the cracks and the broken places in the musical instruments I use as my materials. I turn what has been overlooked or discarded into something beautiful. Something that celebrates the inherent beauty that was already there.

      People who have their own cracks and broken places (as we all do) can find inspiration and strength in what they create from their circumstances.

      These Stoppers are Dearborn-Bound!

      These Stoppers are Dearborn-Bound!

      This batch of Cymbalism Whiskey bottle stoppers is on its way to VIllage Picture Framing and Art Gallery in Dearborn, Michigan. I gave the stoppers one last polish outside on a recent fine Summer day before packing them up for the journey. The stopper tops are cut from mahogany scraps from a guitar builder and broken drum cymbals.
