Faces (collage)

Some of my earliest faces--several of which are now part of my "Family Totem" piece, a 7 ft. tall totem pole. Many of these faces were born out of the trashed treasures I collected from one of my first serious junking expeditions ;) Often, they just create themselves...like the smashed soda can that screamed 'grumpy' face, or the curled lid for the 'worried-about-to-cry' face, and the mangled/punctured lid that became the 'ick-I'm-sick' face (with a fuse for the thermometer).

All pieces here made entirely of found scrap wire, junked and rusted metal objects: lids, utensils, auto parts, cans, hinges, saw blades, springs, nuts/bolts etc., with glass or ceramic beads for embellishment.
