of changing materials into new products to prevent waste of
potentially useful materials. What I am talking about today are
those people who can look at something and turn it into
something that is totally unrelated to the raw material. It takes
imagination, creativity, and often just a bit of quirkiness!
Here's some examples I rounded up showing just what some
people have managed to create out of ordinary objects. Rather
than end up in a dumpster and ultimately in the city dump, these
objects have been turned into some really amazing "works of art."
Enjoy the show.
