Do you know what I love about working with found items?  The character!  Every piece is full of character.  The green of the flat washer that makes the head of this snowman was found just as you see it, as was that bright yellow strip around the right key "arm".  How could I not put those two colors together?  The springy green flower embellishment and also the hat lend a feminine touch.  Snowmen in the $35.00 range, such as this one, are typically around 6 - 8 inches tall.

 

My snowmen are made with all manner of found items...could be industrial, interesting, funny, flashy, pretty, or proper.  Cast-off farm junk, mainly flat washers, are the foundation of these sculpures, and they are adorned with keys for arms, jewelry bits and pieces, and they are usually topped with lovely hats made from pins, earrings, gears, or other completely random items - all attached with my go-to sculpture medium of wire.  A loop of chain, a few inches long, is attached at the top of each snowman, so they are ready to hang up anywhere you please.  A one-of-a-kind gift!

 

The unique charm of these sculptures cannot quite be captured by camera.  They are full of texture, color, rust, jewels, sparkle, and fun.  They are sprayed with a glossy clear coat.  They are a joy to create, and I hope they bring some joy to you!
