I spotted this awesome bottlecap fish at Sweet Melissa's, a breakfast place in downtown Decatur, GA. Isn't it awesome?
Atlanta artist Leigh Kirkland made this bottlecap fish, and it looks like just one of many in her collection. She works in a variety of media, from watercolors to mixed media art featuring found objects. Her found object assemblages are by far my favorite pieces though.
There's a great bottlecap flounder on her website that uses old hinges as the fins. I just love how she uses what she has to create sweet art pieces that clearly have a sense of humor.
Have you spotted any cool, upcycled art lately? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
