|"Renewal" Altered art tin by Starr White|
Inspired by all the wonderful altered art I've seen on Pinterest, I decided to give it a try and alter a little tin can myself. It represents renewal - new life for an old tin can and the coming of spring all rolled into one! The little bunny which looks like a guinea pig with large ears is my first anything-other-than-toadstools attempt at sculpting. I love him. and his tiny pink toadstools.
What do you think of altered art? I think it's fabulous, and if I knew how to weld or solder, no piece of rusty junk would be safe around me. I see lots of altered art sculptures at the museums, and they always fascinate me. Once, we saw a T-rex made entirely out of recycled metal that looked like it had been liberated from a junk yard. It was wonderful!! That was years ago, and ever since then, I have had a desire to do something with junk. Something on a much smaller scale. And finally here it is. Not a T-rex, but a sweet little bunny pig munching on tiny lichen cabbages. Recycled - my way:))))
