critical angle

I had a lot of fun making this, my latest bottle cap tapestry, for some incredible clients (and friends) for their beautiful home in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. So grateful for their bold choice to commission an original artwork and to contribute to the creative process of the design! I also would not have been able to find the wide array of colors I needed for the project without the help of my worldwide network of family and friends. 1,877 beverages were consumed in the process - I hope they were all enjoyed in moments of refreshment, celebration or great conversation.
