A Series of Tubes

Scavenging for items to upcycle in my sculpture has become one of my favorite things to do, outside of the actual creating.  Wandering the aisles of local thrift shops, or pedaling from one garage sale to the next makes my mind race with new ideas and excitement.  My latest characters are the product of one of those finds.  A box of dirty used electron tubes became the jumping off point for my Series of Tubes.

 

 

They made their debut at the Kerrytown Artisan Market last weekend, and many are now listed in my etsy shop.  I am far from done creating these funny guys, as I still have quite a few small tubes left, and nearly a whole box of larger ones which I have yet to dig in to.  Let me know what you think!
