Hello, I've discovered that plastic easter eggs make great sculptural materials. Hey I love bright colors and I think its always appropriate to combine bright colors with animals. These zebras have a wire armature, and since easter eggs come with convenient little holes in the tops and bottoms, I threaded the wire right through them.

Also whipped up this easter lion. Seriously the plastic eggs shaped themselves into a mane and simply asked me to make the rest of it. It was not my idea.

This dragon is made of caps, bread clips, dental flossers, coat hangers, easter eggs...I love it!

Here is the phoenix that I created by melting a pit of plastic together, but mostly by covering every inch of everything in candy wrappers with my glue gun. The phoenix is a symbol of rebirth, and it seemed fitting to give new meaning to garbage materials by turning them into this legendary bird.

This year Fort McMurray of Alberta, Canada was almost completely destroyed by wildfires, and now the city is starting to rebuild again.

I named the phoenix Murray.
