Richard and I were at the Denver Arts Festival and we fell in love with the work of our booth neighbors, Hayley Nolte and Scot Ray. They transform post-consumer metal containers into beautiful art.

Hayley Nolte & Scot Ray – Recycled Metal Folk Art

They flatten, hand cut. layer and hammer post consumer metal containers, onto a wooden base, then add roofing material  and distressed copper. The result is unique art characterized by highly tactile, color-dense, 2D relief surfaces.
