A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

Another Man's Treasure

Whew! It's been a busy Memorial day weekend for Extreme Craft. I've got so much love to share, starting with my friend Clifton alerting me to an NPR story about Haitian garbage artists. Strangely enough, the day after the story ran, I was talking with my friend Todd, who has been to Haiti several times (and was recently married by a voodoo priest). He mentioned his admiration for the garbage artists, who use whatever materials they can lay their hands on to construct intricate and ambitious statues.
