Lee Gainer’s work is organic in it’s appearance, like a field of flowers, but created from many bits of man-made materials. Each took just over a month to build. Pieces contain a variety of recycled - upcycled - materials such as fabric, paper, felt, foil, caps, carpet, metal, plastic, styrafoam, dried paint, beads, padding and cardboard, that have been hand-rolled into circles and swirls. Beautiful way to turn ordinary everyday objects into art.
TOILET~PAPER ROLLS: up'd to Christmas Tree ornaments. Are these cute or what? They’re actually just cardboard toilet paper rolls, painted in bright colors and decorated with black permanent markers. One end of the roll is simply pinched to create the owl’s ‘ears’ – a fun and easy project for both kids and adults. FORGET GOING TO A BIG BOX STORE and piling a cart high with cheap, mass-produced holiday decorations made in China. Help the Earth and create lasting memories with the kids.
