In response to my previous posting, somebody left an anonymous comment asking me to post a photo of Alpha Centauri, a piece from my Star series that I added directly to Etsy without posting on my blog.
This is the only piece of the series which was made completely with found objects, including the piece of plastic it was created on. And the only one that includes both metal and rubber found objects as well. Alpha Centauri is the brightest star in the southern constellation of Centaurus. It appears to be a single star when seen from Earth. However, it is actually a triple star and this is represented in the piece by the use of the three found, circular objects.
Thank you for all your positive feedback to this series. Turns out it is as much fun to actually use found objects in my art as it is to simply just look at them!
Vega - upper right hand corner of this mosaic - is still available in Etsy.
Sold. Thank you!
