I came across this page tonight showing ten different pieces of recycled art. They were part of the Recycled Arts and Resource Expo in Bellingham, Washington. The artists have reused everything from appliance parts to egg cartons to packing foam.

I had seen a lot of recycled arts here locally and some are really useful. Just us for old sewing machines that are converted into a table or center piece. And some other work of art for home decors and some are featured on exhibits.

There is a recycling company in San Francisco called Recology. There was a story on the news on how they invite artists to pick through their scraps and design art pieces from it. They call it the "Recology SF Artists in Residence Program".
They provide the artists with all the discarded materials they can use and the artists turn it into something. They get a stipend and studio space as well.
It is interesting for a recycling company to get this involved with individuals. I guess it shows that they are involved in the community.

Once again, I wish I was more artistic. I can paint pictures with words, but that's my limit. Hang on, though - seeing as I'm using words which already exist, and using them in different contexts, perhaps I'm a reclycing artist as well!

Those were quite impressive!! I couldn't imagine doing this myself, but that is cool that she did. What was amazing is that I could tell what every scene was, even tho the figures would be quite small!

The soda can dragon is stunning.
Artists think differently than most folks.

If you Google Fleur Debris you'll see some examples of upcycled art. I've seen the artist at one of our local art markets. I'm not crazy about the debris fleur de lis, but I think the little houses are cute.
