Howard Jones, a local St. Louis artist, is obsessed with tools. These are not your ordinary tools. Jones masterfully melds ideas of the everyday tool with fantasy. By taking the everyday household object and adding the unexpected allows for a witty dialogue around functionality, purpose and imagination.
