I'm particularly drawn to the shape covered with moss, or is it patina? I can almost feel the nubbiness of the teal, and the raised velvet of the green. I'd love to know what it is. The colors are beautiful.

The combination of colors and textures is fantastic, isn't it? I think it's a combination of rust/patina and lichen-like growths. I hate to destroy the mystery, but it's a picture of a piece of toilet plumbing in a very humid, very rural environment.

Sorry! I didn't mean to push you into giving it away. I'm really found of found art, and it makes me very curious.

Terry said...

fond of found art. Sheesh.

It's OK, Terry: I'm very proud of my ability to find art wherever. The only time I'd be truly reluctant to tell would be if it were something I'd done myself, if it weren't really found art.
