What do all of these things have in common? They are all made from hangers. Some from wood, some from plastic and some from wire hangers. Sculpture, Industrial Design, Product Design. All are beautiful and aesthetically pleasing to me, not to mention fascinating to look at! It does beg the question, "What's in your closet?" Hope you enjoy them too and get inspired to do something artistic with something you would otherwise just throw out.
