I just got a CD full of images from our ART show at The Exchange in April. I wrote about it here but I thought I'd share some of them with you, so you could see what kinds of creative re-use we can make from garbage here on the island.
The first three images are of the Dharma bowls I made. They were a fairly big hit. Holly wants to trade some chai for one. My first barter. Awww.
Jeff makes these boxes from old record albums. It's an old family pattern. In fact, his sister brought the craft, using old greeting cards to a "hooley" that a mutual friend was having as her shared talent. It was at that party that Jeff first admired me, even though I don't remember that he was there at all. :-)
A real life prize goes to the first person who is not my dad but who comments on this blog and correctly identifies the garbage being re-used as art in the photo below. It'll be a good prize, I promise.
Our friend Rachel is a super-quilter. Almost all of the fabric in this baby set that she made for her own Baby Owen was brought in to the Exchange by people that couldn't use it.
There are several giant art installations on permanent display at the Exchange. This head was made by our friend Ian, who is also a glassblower and has two beautifully fey little girls. Try to identify all of the elements and what they used to be.
Remember garbage made into art can reform our minds if we let it.
