Candy Wrapper Phoenix (Murray)

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.
