Mail Boxes, Etc.

I am immensely entertained by creative and clever use of materials that are re-purposed and constructed into something entirely different than what the original object was designed for. In addition to this, I am all about paying respect to a dying way of life... in this case, a dying form of communication. Formal letter writing, and in reality, all that's associated with the postal system will one day be just notations in history.

Sadly, the time will come when mailboxes will be buried in antiquity, discarded as inefficient and obsolete due to the ease of electronic mail, environmental issues and the high
cost of postage, salaried mail carriers, fuel and building maintenance, not to mention human disinterest in actually taking pen to paper.

Until then, we can enjoy these curiously delightful mailboxes...
