|What is a symblage, usually called an assemblage?
An assemblage is a recognized form of art in which 3-D items are
employed. This differentiates it from a collage which uses
2-D materials. When I first was apprised of the name for this art
type, I misheard 'assemblage' as 'symblage'. Although later I
realized the misunderstanding, I decided to continue to call my works
"symblages" because they are highly symbolic. For me, it was a
wonderful case of serendipity.
