In this piece I experimented with embedding pieces of failed art that had been broken up and saved as scrap. I guess it is technically an assemblage even though it is comprised of my own work. I found that if I sealed the pieces down using petroleum jelly, the pigmented cement did not flow under them and their edges remained defined. This open up a lot of new and exciting possibilities.
