The Art of the Wine Cork.

17Jul12

I love the world we live in, especially the creative arts portion. I think it’s extraordinary how so many artistic minds are coming up with new ways to craft their talent. Take Scott Gundersen for example, an illustrator and artist based in Grand Rapids, Gundersen uses thousands (3600-9000+) of used or recycled corks and pins them to drawings derived from photographs to create large scale portraits. Amazing! To watch time-lapse video of the process go here.    pb

    Splendid! I’ve been saving my wine corks, displaying them in a glass bowel as decor. I’ve shared this on my FB page so thank you for continuing your quests on great posts! 🙂

    • So have you started a “portrait” yet?
