Friday Favorite--Leuckit

I am forever fascinated by people's creativity.  Especially when an artist takes everyday items and what seems to be 'junk' and turns them into something wonderful.  Case in point:  Leuckit.

Donna Provo Leuck uses kitchen utensils, old flashlights, candy molds, tin boxes--whatever she can find--and turns these common objects into clever sculptures.  It's recycling at its best---or upcycling, if you prefer.  I think her sculptures are fun and whimsical, and I'm pleased to share them with you today.  I've chosen five of my favorites to showcase here, but I hope you will check out her shop to see the rest of her clever creations.

Baby Stole My Heart - robot - art assemblage - kitchen robots
Wanna Race - robot sculpture - recycled art - ooak
A Penny for Your Thoughts - Robot Art Assemblage - kitchen robot
Walking the Dog-robot art sculpture-ooak kitchen robot
And in the spirit of Halloween:
Skeleton - Robot Skeleton - recycled art assemblage
Now head on over to Leuckit and check out the rest of Donna's robots.  Be sure to read her profile as well.  Her story is inspiring!
Have a great weekend!
PS--I'm exhibiting at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, this weekend.  If you are in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area, stop in and say HI!  It's a great show, with lots of wonderful artists and craftspeople.
