Rug from Cigarette Butts

April 29, 2010

Well, someone had a lot of time on his/her hands, and a lot of cigarette butts.  What a statement!  And beautiful, too.  I wish that the artists had been the street cleaners who collected the butts….  But no such luck.  Still, pretty cool!

Thanks to Daily Art Muse (www.dailyartmuse.com) for the link to this story, as well as the introduction to the treehugger.com website – also a great find.

Here’s the rug and the story:
