NEW PROJECT

HEIRLOOM 2

it has been quiet here at clareburson.com, but something new is afoot – a new project, emerging from my little bubble of motherhood and museum-ing.  consider this post a ‘soft’ opening for what i am calling

“THE HEIRLOOM PROJECT: ‘this is a cheese’ and other family stories

many of you already know about my petrified cheese.  for those of you who do not, go ahead and get acquainted here or here.  anyway, i have come to the reasonable conclusion that my 120 year old wedge of cheese cannot be the only wacky family heirloom on the planet.  so i am on a quest to collect stories about YOUR awesomely wacky family heirlooms that contain within them the mundane and the poignant.

once i have enough stories, i plan to compile a book (and most likely an accompanying album) that is part anthology, part memoir, part fiction, part mine, part yours, and hopefully, in total, a good time for all.

soon, i will set up a special site dedicated to the project, which will allow you to contribute photos and stories.

for now, please email me at clareburson @ gmail dot com if you have a story or a lead on one.  eventually, i will focus the project on objects that are currently located in new york city, but for now, i’m just excited to hear about what’s out there.

drop me a line!
