Artist John Petrey has a flair for turning junk material into something actually beautiful. He uses materials like broken wood, bottle caps, old highway signs, patina, ceiling tiles to create cute dresses and gowns. Although the creations are really gorgeous, they are not meant to be worn. I have to say, usually found objects are all rusty and cruddy, so I’m pretty impressed that they look ‘clean’.  This could fall in the category of a ‘Monet’ (cute from afar, a mess up front), but I doubt it. They are just so well together and perfect. Check out John Petrey‘s website for more awesome creations.
