Something different…

My neighbor down the street has an air conditioning business out of a small commercial building. Sometimes he puts wooden pallets out by his dumpster for trash pick up and recently he put out a small pallet that kept calling my name whenever I walked my dogs. Soooooo.... I asked if I might have it and he said yes I could have whatever I wanted there so I ended up with 3 of these smaller wood pallets. An idea was brewing in my creative mind because this was like a "frame" to me as an artist and so I couldn't wait to get started!! I made a sketch of my design and fashioned the clay components that I wanted for the project and after they were bisque fired I brought them home to paint with bright acrylic paints instead of glazing them. The installation was a bit tedious but in the end my design prevailed and I'm pleased with the outcome. It is an art installation/shadow box/mobile "Whatchamacallit" and I even added some fairy lights and battery operated votives for a different effect. What do you think? I call it "Under the Sea" ....

This is the humble beginnings....

This is the unlighted version...

This is what it looks like with the addition of 2 strings of fairy lights and two battery operated votives which I think give it an under-water effect! What do you think?

    This is fabulous. I love how you recycled something destined for the trash or recycle bin and turn it into a beautiful work of art. MOST IMPRESSIVE.
