list of all pills that can get you high

As a child, I collected treasure. My searches for emeralds and rubies were satisfied 
by alternatives in fragments of costume jewelry, bubblegum-machine plastic, and stones with 
glittering mica. Quests to notice, collect, synthesize and invent still drive my work as 
an artist and educator. Rummaging and ruminating, I now create serial sculpture that incorporates
ceramics, found objects, and poetry fragments. For this project, the idea of a blanket that 
was too small and too precious resonated with some of my girlhood and adult experiences 
sharing objects, ideas, and love from parents among many sisters and stepsisters. I created 
a very small blanket full of jewelry, baubles, accessories and other items that sisters sometimes 
share and sometimes steal from one another.
