How To Use Those Old Corks!

I have always been interested in the different ways people recycle and reuse things for the sake of art.  Metal craft is okay, kinda overdone....  Here in New Orleans, a lot of people do interesting artwork with recycled glass bottles and bottle caps so I guess this is kinda similar.  You know, cork, cap, same thing....

So here are five interesting uses that people have done with their corks that are just a little above and beyond.
Enjoy!


I can't really imagine this one being all too comfortable but nonetheless it is very impressive.


 Now this one I actually kinda like. 
 Even though in this picture it seems that they have used it for a bathroom rug.

An urn.  Why not?
Pictured here is Steven Leslie who makes all sorts of cork art.
You can view them at his website http://www.oneofacork.com/


A cork cow.  I would love it I could squeeze Cabernet from those things.





And finally a grand cork mosaic.
I think I'll just stick to supplying these fine people with used corks....
