As a collector of vintage tin clowns, I have always wanted to do a sculpture incorporating one.  Alas, I found the “right one” among a bunch of stuff two elderly women were selling at a flea market in Florida.   This early 1950’s wind-up (that works) was made in Japan.  He stands atop a musician’s trumpet mute from the 1920’s.  In my collection of pinbacks was the “Don’t be a quitter” pin that crystalized the idea.  The old porcelain figurine of the little girl with a balloon is looking up at the clown with admiration.  The small ball folk art fishing bobber and the clown’s tin hat rest on a civil war era forged iron stand.
