Lin McIntosh Studios Birds
I started making birds out of scraps of
steel drums because many of them held oil which has compromised the habitats
of birds -- and yet since the steel drums are now being replaced with plastic
drums, the steel drums are becoming endangered.
What you see are the exact scraps from steel drums as
I pick them up from the floor of my studio after making other items. I
donít cut them to fit -- I piece them together like a puzzle, then clear
coat them so they wonít rust as fast outside.
