On the Sixth Day of Christmas…

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

Six scrap metal remnants,
Five… snow… man… rings,
Four carved from a nut,
Three disc men,
Two simple blocks,
and a snowman family straight from the sea.

Concept Sketch

If you have ever dallied among the tents of a craft show, you have undoubtedly seen cute, little animals crafted from junkyard scraps. I always admire the contrast created by hard mechanical objects depicting soft organic. So, I took a trip to my local hardware store. This is the result.

…and here are a few of my metal snowmen from year’s past.
