Riitta Ikonen: Mail Art

7 November 2011

I’ve collected all the postcards I’ve been sent over the last seven years. My favourite one is made from a piece of a door complete with keyhole that was found washed up on a beach in Cornwall. Last week Riitta showed us her Mail Art project at Field Trip – I wish she was my pen pal for the mad array and sheer inventiveness of her hand-made maverick mail. Lucky Margaret Huber who’s been receiving these treats through her letterbox from Riitta. And well done to all the posties for not being too baffled by the contents to deliver them!
