Giveaway! South African upcycling, refined

If you entered the last South-Africa-related giveaway, then you know RSA is home for me ... and I recently returned from a month of summer! In my last SA-upcycling post, I focused on crafts consisting, primarily, of repurposed soda cans. In this post, I want to show a more varied mix of "art"and craft. Work that pushes the definition of "repurposing" ... work that highlights color, street-art sensibility, creative mixing of media and, yes, includes a whole lot of "found" materials. 

Like wood scraps. I love this kind of mixed media stuff... so I was delighted by these coloful pieces of continental drift ...
