Beer Can Art

His name was... Albert (Tapper) Torney Everyone thought he was a bit
eccentric and kids would tease and hassle him. But it was discovered he
was very talented and only sold the empty bottles and some of the cans.

After he died in 1998 (aged 86) His large collection of Model Cars he
made from the Aluminum Cans was discovered.
 He always carried a Sugar Bag to collect empty bottles and cans.
This goes to prove..."You Shouldn't Judge A Book by its Cover", or a
Sculptor by his sugar bag.

Pine Needle Artist

This guy is absolutely amazing !!

Richard Carpenter, from Idaho

Website found HERE

What do you do when you decide to be a poor country folk artist?
With little money (if any) you must be creative. Use your resources.
This artist did just that.
What do you find in the mountains of Idaho ?.........PINE TREES.
You're thinking something made out of wood.....Right?
Not even close. Check out these pictures.
These bears are made from Pine Needles!!!!
A couple of hundred thousand of them in one large bear.
The pine needles were gathered off the ground, sorted, washed, trimmed and hand woven.
Over 8 months in making the life size bear!
