Horse Cents

A few months ago, I saw an image but didn’t save it, nor did I burn into my memory who the artist was that created this amazing masterpiece. BIG mistake on my part. Huge! (paraphrased from Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman– haha!) I couldn’t get it out of my mind, but couldn’t track it down.  After I did the post ‘How to Make a Penny Floor’, I was in a state of sheer frenzy. Couple that with my horse-crazy child’s birthday and I made it a mission to find it. I’m so glad I did. Prepare to be blown away:

When I first saw it, my immediate reaction was to dissect it. I wanted to DIY it. Then I read what the artist, Rachel Denny, had done. They are actually pennies that she:

yep, flattened. Ugh. I’m not going to go to that much trouble. She also drilled and screwed them to the form, which sounds like a loooottt of work. When I showed my horse-obsessed child and asked her what she thought this piece was made of, she said, “Scales.” Huh. I dismissed it at the time, but later thought, you know, if I ever get some time (doubtful) it would be fun to take larger sequins and make it. If her horse obsession continues, I may.

(If you read my post Adorable DIY Ideas for Kid’s Rooms, I talked about beheading plastic reindeer for mounting purposes.)

The piece below seems to be not quite as challenging, yet still striking:

In the meantime, if you haven’t seen Rachel Denny’s work, here is some of her other amazing pieces:

Nothing like someone’s creativity to make you feel like a complete dolt 😉
