Music is Life...Music is Art!

Look what I made!
If you look closer you'll see my new art is made from drumsticks. My son brought these home after his last tour. The drummer of the band he works for was changing sticks and these would have been thrown away. My son is a drummer as well and I thought, "I can do something with those." I used some old shelves from a cabinet as the background.

So I got out my drill and hammer and went to it. The original intent was to make art for his townhome, but I'm thinking I'm wanting to keep them. What do you think, Ben?
If you look even closer you'll see the sticks are the signature sticks for the Devil Wears Prada. I think my house is a bit more hip simply because of that!

They throw them AWAY?????

Do they have any idea how much those sticks will be worth on eBay when they're rich & world famous?

Cool design! At least YOU realize their value! :)

Just the best when you can turn someone's throwaways into a piece of art. Keep them!

My husband once had a set of Ginger Bakers drum sticks - until his Dad flogged them ;0/
and it's just as well my Dad can't get a hold of these, his drumming without sticks is constant, it would be unbearable with them ;0)

Fantastique! May not be a word, but you get the drift. MOMA will be hot on your trail.

My son loves the Devil wears Prada! :) How fun it that! Great Idea. My son also drums but his sticks get all chewed up and all there good for is the trash.
