Anyone Using Recycled Material In Art?

I have been experimenting with using different kinds of materials in my art pieces. Here is a piece that I did using a discarded suitcase to go with the theme of travel. Other items used were paper, cardboard, and of course airplane scrap metal. Post here if you used recycled material in your work.

About 75% of my work is based on or created from recycled materials.

I've begun using wooden pallets to make art. I add sea shells, palm tree parts.
I've already sold these two.

Francesa, you have a real eye for detail and I love your use of pallets

Thanks. It was hard throwing the pallets away that came in to my day job. Many of them were oak and poplar; good, beautiful wood. I just wish they were easier to take apart.

I used newspaper in my art, and also used plywood as based for my art pieces.

I haven't recently...but did use various shells, netting, glass, metals, etc. in various collages...will find images & post later...

This artist's rice plant leaves & straw originals are a marvel -- enjoy Rajan Koshy's creativity at http://www.etsy.com/shop/museumshop?ref=hdr

No color, paint or dye added to the natural color of the materials in most of the pieces.

Shawna.... Love those Collages... How's the City scape going?

I can't post all my work here, But every single piece of my work is created from Pre-used Materials... Steel things from every corner of the Spectrum...

I have been working on this Idea for a few days, and I'm loving it as it keeps getting more exciting, but I'm not letting on what it is yet... What do you think??
