Christine Claringbold

Christine Claringbold, a native Oregonian, began painting in 1994, while living in Montana and awaiting the birth of her daughter, Tangereen Velveteen.

Needing a way to express her powerful emotions, she grabbed the first blank "canvas" she could find, which happened to be a vintage hardshell suitcase with the Greyhound tags still attached--it had accompanied her on many travels. The front panel of the suitcase soon became a wild exploration of color and pattern.

In the years since, Christine has continued to embrace the concept of using recycled and reclaimed materials as her canvases, including a box of old records donated by a friend of a friend. With records, Christine discovered her ability to create mandalas, and this has become the basis of her work.

Comments about RECLAIMED RECORD PINWHEELS:

I had my pinwheel for 1 month when I bounced a soft ball (thing soft dog toy) in the backyard. On the second bounce it bumped the pinwheel, and the pinwheel snapped. My husband and I just stared, our mouths hanging open. Finally he said, "Well that [$] was possibly a bit too high."

Comments about RECLAIMED RECORD PINWHEELS:

My grandchildren will love this pinwheel when they visit. It is one of several unusual things I have in my yard - several of which come from Uncommon Goods. Since I live in the woods, it stands out with its bright color.

    Comments about RECLAIMED RECORD PINWHEELS:

    We have this next to our driveway, and the colors are terrific. I'm a little concerned about how long it will survive, given that it's outside, without showing signs of weathering, but I still think it's beautiful. It was a little pricey compared to some other items I purchased for outside from Uncommon Goods, in my opinion.
