Mary Ellen Croteau Makes Bottle Cap Art

Bottle Caps

Artist Mary Ellen Croteau proves that recycling can be beautiful with her work, titled Close, made entirely of bottle caps.

According to Mary:

Plastic bottle caps – like bags, a plastic product that can’t be/isn’t recycled. I conceived of an “endless column” of these caps, after Constantin Brancussi’s iconic modernist sculpture. One became two, and two became many. While making these columns, I noticed the smaller caps tended to nest inside one another, and the color combinations reminded me of Chuck Close’s painted portraits. So I got sidetracked and started on a large self-portrait made entirely of bottle caps. The piece measures 8 feet by 7 feet. No paint is used, except to delineate a few shadows where white board was showing through. In a few cases, the caps are trimmed in order to fit a tight space.

Turkey + Dunkin’ Donuts = tarDunkin’

TurDunkin

Before serving your guests a freshly made Cherpumple, you’re going to need a main course worthy of such a delicious desert.

So what goes well with pie-on-pie pandemonium?

How about the tarDunkin’, a turkey brined in Dunkin’ Donuts Coolattas, stuffed with Munchkins and served with coffee gravy and mashed hash browns?

Yup; it doesn’t get much better than that.
