Art from Found Materials
By Mary Lou Stribling.
Pick up this book and witness the finest achievements in the field of found object art—from fabric offcuts to discarded plastic, religious icons to meaningless whirligigs. Far from being a simple catalogue of others’ achievements, the author includes over 400 illustrations to demonstrate the various techniques essential for every artist working with found objects—whether they be scrap metals, salvaged wood or sea glass.
When was the last time you operated a simple loom? What was the last piece of appliqué to which you applied yourself? How often have you molded a shiny brooch from an old tin can? If the answers to these questions escape you, then this book is a must-have tool to remedy your shortcomings.
