Creatively Reducing Waste

The 14th annual Crackedpots Art Show

Art must be created from a minimum of 80% materials which:
  • have had a manufactured (human-made) past life,
  • have been retired from that life,
  • have been re-purposed to a new life,
  • you have not purchased new, and
  • are not leftover from pieces from a new purchase.
                     Humming Bird Feeders :D

Got an old bowling ball?

Got a few wine corks and an old picture frame?


I'm working on a project for next year's artist challenge!
