I use old garden tools such as pitch forks and shovels and make garden art with them. I use old pie pans for bird feeders. I craft recycled old wool blankets into benches from old rock corey mesh. I find original car emblems and wrenches and make coat racks from old barn wood. I take old large soup cans and cut art into them and make lights.
I am a trained blacksmith and do custom ironwork. I find most of my recycled stuff at garage sale and vintage shops. I find reusing old materials gratifying for the challenge to make it into something unique and useful.
