Web Resources for Found Objects

From Pinterest

Lee Gainer’s work is organic in it’s appearance, like a field of flowers, but created from many bits of man-made materials. Each took just over a month to build. Pieces contain a variety of recycled - upcycled - materials such as fabric, paper, felt, foil, caps, carpet, metal, plastic, styrafoam, dried paint, beads, padding and cardboard, that have been hand-rolled into circles and swirls. Beautiful way to turn ordinary everyday objects into art.: Wall Art, Fields Of Flower, Junk Mail, Crafts Ideas, Fabrics Paper, Paper Scrap, Magazines Art, Lee Gainer, Recycled Art
