Reduce, Recycle, Reuse equals art



My favorite kind of art is made from recycled objects, injecting into them a new and sometimes curious life. Jim Shores is a self-taught artist from Georgia, who falls in to this group of talented folk. He creates metal sculpture, assemblages and environmental art from discarded objects and I dare you not to smile when you spot one. His art is delightful and his friends think a whole lot of good about him.

Hi Kay,
Interesting blog you have here.
That's what I do, collecting stuff and then making something out of it.
