Keith Shearsby Useful Things @ YouMe Gallery 2

Broom was another of my favourite pieces in the show. It's an object that I could spend a few years admiring. Sadly, none of the work in Keith Shearsby's March 2016 Useful Things exhibit was available for purchase. Sweeping a floor with Broom could be fun or frustrating, depending on your expectations.

Take a close look of the handle of Spring Hammer. Its grooves and patina indicates that it was used in its previous (useful) life.

Cane and Crutches are worthy of performance art. Cane's bell is a nice touch, as are Crutches' hand brakes.
