Entering the Ukrainian Village home of artists Jared and Jessica Joslin is like teetering on the edge of a dream—a place where creatures have skeletons fashioned from Victorian chandeliers, wings composed of antique candy dishes. Jessica modifies and combines the bones of birds, cats, turtles, and other animals with decorative metals to create fantastical beasts; it's easy to imagine the sounds they'd make if they could move—the creaking of tiny gears, the tip-tapping of metal claws across the floor. They're surrounded by Jared's surreal paintings, mostly portraits set in bygone circus scenes.
