"Contains...imaginative art objects...Hanson builds enthusiasm in his text for the craft, and he does it with wit."--Arts & Activities In a newly revised and expanded version of his original success, celebrated folk artist Bobby Hanson takes the humble tin can and elevates it to art. On display in attention-grabbing photos are an array of quirky objects that will delight and amaze--and all it takes to make them are a few simple tools, some cans, and these simple instructions on cutting, shaping, riveting, and soldering. The charmingly fun projects include some childlike objects such as whistles, trucks, and airplanes; a "Tin Pan Alley" series of musical instruments, including a "canjo" and chimes; and even stunning jewelry and sculptures. Artists, metal crafters, and anyone seeking a new creative outlet will find inspiration aplenty in these uniquely original ideas and projects.Hansson, Bobby is the author of 'Fine Art of the Tin Can Techniques and Inspirations', published 2005 under ISBN 9781579906795 and ISBN 1579906796.
