Oddments come about on their own accord, often as a series. I can’t quite call them “art.”
But there’s enough to have a category all their own. They’re usually made from collections of things
brought together because I just can’t help it. They have some theme to them, like the “Postcard Shrines,”
or the “Voodoo Dolls,” or the hand-sewn, hand-embroidered, “Self-Portrait as a Doll” dolls.
And they are time-intensive and carefully made. They come about from bits and pieces I pick up, or save, or find,
or are given to me that would otherwise have been left as scraps, trash, unnoticed, mistakes, broken, remnants, etc.
