For images worthy of more than mass-manufactured frames. Bottlecaps cover this sweet stout frame. I beat 'em, cut 'em, bend 'em to my will. If one bottle cap will do, I add another. Excess. That's the secret. I tuck mirror bits here and there for surprise sparkle. The frame is about 6-1/2" x 7-1/4", weird sizing I think due to the multitude of caps.
The image area is roughly 3" square.
Jan Meng lives art 25/8 at Hungry Holler Art Refuge in rural northeast Oklahoma. Gourds, mirrors, bottle caps, concrete make her swoon. She gardens pathologically.
