Project: Reflection Platter
By: Henry Garvey, Garvey's Barnyard
Your junk is someone else's treasure..... That is how it is for Henry Garvey of Garveys Barnyard.
Using recyclables to create unique art is becoming an ever growing industry. Garveys Barnyard helps buyers and sellers locate each other for items ranging from old galvanized feed buckets to broken pottery. Putting people in contact with junk has also allowed Henry to expand his own artwork.
Here is a simple project Henry thought you would enjoy making and LOOKING at !
1 Old platter or plate
Paints or Finishes (optional)
1 Mirror cut to size
Paint or finish the platter if desired. Drill a hole for the hanger hook if you will be hanging the platter. Next you will need to measure your platter for the mirror, or simply bring your project to your local glass company. For a few dollars, they will cut and mastic the mirror in place. For under $5 you can create an attractive original piece of art to hang in your home.
