Antarctic Item 032

The items I collected and shipped home from Antarctica have arrived. I’m pretty excited to have this eclectic collection of treasures in hand and am in the process of cataloging them to keep track of what ends up where. I’ll show some of these over the next few days before returning to the sketchbook pages, and will continue alternating between Antarctic items and the sketchbook throughout the project.

I’ll debut the Antarctic collection with a personal favorite: a chain assembly tag from Marble Point, an established field camp in the Dry Valleys. As you’ll see in the posts to come, most of my best stuff came from Marble Point courtesy of Crunch the station manager. Big thanks Crunch for your generosity!
