One of the true wonders of wall art..in any form ..is that it can be placed or hung on a blank wall and have the ability to stand entirely on its own, without benefit of props or furnishings. (Walk through any gallery or museum and you’ll see what I mean.) Furniture, on the other hand, cannot! Invariably, it looks incomplete without some kind of accessorizing. (Say a mermaid sculpture or an iron fish for instance. ha!)

CASE IN POINT:

If you have an exterior door opposite your dining rooms entry, try hanging an iron fish sculpture on both sides of that door for a bit of a wow factor. (both, hung facing the door and approx. a foot and a half away from the casing.)

Or, hang a medium size pair of the metal fish (stacked) on one side of the door and the smallest size fish sculpture on the other.

In this brief blog, I would like to simply cast the following message, as a simple attempt to try and save time and spare anguish for so many fellow islanders:

2009 Volunteers In Medicine Christmas Ornaments are here!!!!

The Iron Fish Studio is proud to announce that our 4th annual Volunteers in Medicine Christmas tree ornaments hand decorated by the Daufuskie Island Elementary children are ready for purchase.  This year we made 300 uniquely designed ornaments that sell for $10 per ornament.  This is a suggested price and 100% of all ornament sales go directly to VIM which is an organization that offers free health care to residents of Hilton Head and Daufuskie Island who are not insured and who also meets financial qualifications.

Every year, VIM handles 31,000 patient visits served by approximately 700 volunteers!  The cleaning of VIM, which would cost $25,000 is donated by grateful patients doing their best to give back.  One last important statistic is that 70% of the patients are employed and 20% are children not old enough to work.
