This is the new face of lawn ornamentation: a Toyota sized chicken wire topiary fish covered in recycled bottle caps.
I know. Isn’t it amazing?
My friend Leah photographed it in her old neighborhood, Takoma Park, MD just outside Washington DC. She posted it on facebook nearly two years ago and I haven’t forgotten about it since. Yes, that means I have been saving up bottle caps for nearly TWO YEARS.
People, I am serious. I need me a bottle cap fish.
Small problem: I don’t have a lawn to put it on. I need something more stable, upright with a smaller footprint. Ideas?
|Look, it lights up at night –that means it’s functional too!|
Many thanks to Leah for sharing these photos and haunting my recyclables bin. Many thanks to the Artist-Slash-Leah’s-Old-Neighbor, who I do not know by name, but if you know them, please send them my compliments. People who make good stuff out of crap stuff are the best!
