Keepsake, anything kept, a memento, given or serving as a reminder of a person, event, etc.
Sharing my keepsakes hopefully creating a sense of wonder for the viewer, that may have been long forgotten.
The object is to fabricate these toys life size in scale. Marx tin toys like the race cars pictured above. Imagine being able to sit in the toy of past dreams, racing with your eyes closed to dream again. Or construction machines like the Keystone toys also pictured above, again fabricated bigger then life giving you that feeling of wonder that children share. Wanting to run those rigs, digging foundations and paving new roads.
Memories of life that we hold close, I call them a Keepsake.
