The Art of Seeing


The Art of Seeing, originally uploaded by moonwild.

This piece is created using a metal tin that I darkened in the fire, old wire, school scissors and some odd pieces that decided they belonged together. The holey piece is backed by a page from a math book so that the numbers show through the holes.
The halo of painted wire circles the piece and is used to hang the work. Inside the round tin is a spark plug with the word “seeing” on it. The base is an antique metal hinge part. This might be a good piece to hang near your creation station to inspire ideas!! The size, including the wire, is 5 inches by 13 inches.

I am so awed by how you pick such unrelated items and they all come together to make such amazing pieces! Truly a gift!
