industrial flowers

simple and requires no feeding.  just how i like it.  rebar flowers in metal object vase  

i've got about seven found object flowers made, just starting...just now diggin in.  while tod's flowers are a bit more light and complicated looking, i seem to be drawn to the rebar and a more simple look right now.  

note the yellow 'bud' in there.  this is a five piece object that somehow all fit together seemlessly.

rebar, cork and found wheel

This project is so interesting and surprising!
wild things indeed!
Don´t worry about the market, your work needs maybe another place.....something like a gallery or museum shop...and of course etsy is a great option!

thanks kim!
thanks viktoria. my work has been and is in galleries...i'm kind of trying to shift and be online more or more immediate with a market. the galleries seem painfully slow here and i agree, etsy is a great option :)
i think the interaction is almost as important than the sales sometimes. the gallery world has never been very fun.

Wow! I do love these and the photographs are wonderful too, especially the top one with the peeling wall.
