Pumpkin made from recycled rods
Mike Wyzowski
Well, I made a pumpkin out of recycled rods that I got from the Scrap Bin in Carrollton, GA. This awesome place has all kind of donated goods for artists and crafters at very reasonable prices. It also has opportunities for artists to hold workshops on upcycled art/recyled art and such. And also gallery space for artists that use recycled materials. I'll be having a clock making work shop in January 2012. I carved a pumpkin this year with my Mom, first year in 5-6 years that I didn't do this with my daughter. Mom separated the seed and we roasted them. Next weekend I'll make pumpkin pie with the sugar pumpkin we got at Uncle Bob's pumpkin patch.
So, I've been getting ready for a big push for the holidays and hope to have a lot of hubcaps and artwork online and at the galleries. MetalArtDude's gallery new hubcap clocks and new artwork!
Thanks for reading! Happy Halloween!

Well what have you been up to lately? I've been making a chair for a charity auction for a non profit in Carrollton, GA, the Scrap Bin. It takes donated material and sells it to people like me at greatly reduced rates. But the best part is that they give teachers supplies, up to a certain amount for free, every day. I've taken a few things to them, clock hands, bottle caps, and some other odds and ends. They have a list of what they are looking for, blue glass bottles seem to be a big seller for some reason. The sale of the chairs will take place at their location in Carrollton, GA on November 19, 2011 from 10am - 2pm.
So, onto what's up with my etsy store?  63-ford-galaxie-clock and a 58-ford-fairlane-hubcap-clock, I do have lots more available at or just contact me. I have a lot in my trunk that are still being identified and cleaned.
Also, I did a custom pumpkin.

A flower, a pumpkin, and a hubcap clock

Custom Order Pumpkin
Yellow Flower
Latest projects have that I have been working on include the pumpkin, the flower, and some hubcap clocks. See the flower at Yellow Flower. The pumpkin is still being painted and then is headed to Connecticut.
Chevy center cap clock

Chevy Clock, found this in a junkyard in Lowell, GA. It's over 90 acres of rolling hills with this great view of the country, the owner piled the hubcaps by an old school bus so that I don't have to go traipsing throughout the whole property. He's interested in selling to anyone that might be interested! So, there you have it, what I've been working on for the last few weeks.
