Pyrene

A favorite blog by a fellow BC writer/blogger/artist is Funky Junk Interiors. I am dedicating this great piece of funky junk to Donna. She transforms wood and metal into great looking and useful items with great style. Take a deep look at her blog and be amazed.


The collages below show parts and whole of a Pyrene Copper something - I think it is a fire extinguisher but the identifying words are mostly missing.  I didn't make anything 'new' with this vintage art (art now that it is for looking at but not functional - notice the hose has been cut off) but the whole and the components are a battered, rusty, dusty delight.

  1. Those aren't just pieces, they're ART. :) I could look at this stuff all day but then I'd have to have it or I'd work myself into a frenzy. Thank you for dedicating these wonderful relics to the likes of me! :)
