I like seeing things that are made out of junk but with a bit of creativity become others things – I’m sure it’s a type of up-cycling?
A whole heard of these were in the hotel reception when I checked into my Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland earlier in the year. I was doing some really interesting work for the Icelandic Dyslexic Association.
Then out in Chamonix (French Alps) in the summer this was in the garden of the place I was staying at (well, actually I was sleeping in the garden – it was far to hot inside).
It strikes me that creative sculptures like this could make a nice school project and certainly liven up the school grounds. For a more expensive but equally valid version you might also like to take a quick look at ‘Wild in Art’ – they do a mice range of mythical beasts and other animals that you can paint and then put on display!
