I upped my scale on my tin flowers the other day, just on a whim, for fun, to see what would happen. And I liked it so much I kept making more flowers all week long. I just delivered all of these to Matter! Gallery in Olympia.
I have been saving up lots of larger, interesting pieces of tin knowing that I probably couldn't use them as jewelry but setting them aside. And now I have a great way to showcase them. I love the "Kiss for You."
These are also a nice study in color and form and fun to play with all the different tins I have.
They range from 7" wide to about 11" and look nice in arrangements with other pieces of art or in smaller rooms like the bathroom. I am making some even larger ones too for more dramatic spaces like over the mantel or in the dining room.
Who doesn't want a monkey on a giraffe in their life?
This "Green Jeans" guy was from a Versace perfume tin. Fancy!
I just love working with reclaimed tin! Look for some more of these soon on Etsy!
