Homage To The Spillman Carousel

Tamara Draper's avatar Tamara Draper

My art piece "Homage To The Spillman Carousel" is just that; it's my way to express and honor publically this unique piece of history. It brings back memories of a more innocent and calm time in life, where kids weren't trying to grow up so fast. To me the carousel represents my childhood where our family would have dinner together and talk about our day, or on the weekend we would go to the zoo or to the museum as a family . And now I think about my own family, my husband and children. Hoping they have the opportunities to create unique experiences and develop memories of their own and maybe even someday this experience would be available for our grandchildren . This piece of art started when I came across an antique headboard that I thought resembled a carousel . I went and took pictures of the Spillman carousel and proceeded on creating this stained glass mosaic. I hope you enjoy the memories it may bring you .
