Junk Mail Hairsticks

- by Nikki Soppelsa

This week's theme: Form and Function

Sometimes artists are inspired to create art that is not just for aesthetics or expression, but art that also has a practical function and purpose that goes beyond decoration.

Art: Junk Mail Hairsticks by Artist Nikki Soppelsa
These were created specifically for the "Junk Mail" show. I chose to limit myself to one piece of junk mail and the bamboo sticks are adorned only by the remnants. One piece of mail, one piece of collage art, 14 hairsticks later and I still did not use it all.
Although free, I got my money's worth!

Note: I have made these sticks before from other recyclable papers and do wear and sell them. They are unique because no two are alike... and I prefer to wear them in three's.
Photo below (for demo) shows how with 'magazine' sticks.
