The folding and twisting on the tree above is beautiful - it's amazing the amount of texture they got. And totally different textures on the mushroom cloud below.
I love spending time poking around Goodwill, looking for clothing to repurpose. They arrange the clothes by color, so when I saw this I had to laugh! I always do end up thinking of rainbows as I'm walking up and down the aisles.
When my youngest son, Alex, was working on his BFA in sculpture, he repurposed ties for these pieces, Hired and Fired.

Alex has a unique and fresh perspective on life/art - I'd enjoy his work even if I wasn't his mother! Take a look at his website for other pieces in his portfolio.
Happy Creating! Deborah
