T I N C A N S A L L Y

I use recycled printed tin cans to create whimsical, colorful birds, fish, jewelry, mobiles, collages and more. I often work in multiples, creating installations of flocks of birds, schools of fish and rabbles of butterflies. My favorite installation was a year-long exhibit 'Trash Menagerie' at the Peabody Essex Museum that incorporated 386 tin birds.

The sources of my tins are second hand shops, flea markets, yard sales, dumpsters and generous donations. A few examples of the tin containers that I use are biscuit, olive oil, cookie, candy, spice, tea, anchovy, curry, ethnic food and sewing tins.

Tin Can Sally is my pseudonym. I am also known as Sally Seamans. My work can be seen at: www.tincansally.net
