On Being a Bag Lady

My latest project uses plastic shopping bags. My friends are collecting coloured plastic bags for me. I've become a "bag lady". My art room is a wild assortment of bags filled with bags.

I'm having fun experimenting with melting and fusing them into 3-dimensional shapes. I'm hoping to create a large wall sculpture with different colours of plastic shapes for the ReVision recyling show later in the year. It's a long process. I'm needing lots of bags.

I had a spell of melting plastic shopping bags, mainly to use in small pictures/samples. Doing 3D shapes sounds like fun. Good luck with your wall sculpture & thanks for your visit to my blog.
