“I was inspired by this artist’s bottle cap fish to create my own bottle cap dragon. 540 beer bottle caps (170 Amber Bock, 206 Killians, 68 Budweiser Select, 96 Budweiser) make up this 41 x 43 inch piece.”Link.

    My own bottle cap mosaics were initially inspired by Haitian ritual flags, in which detailed images are realized entirely through the use of sequins. The first bottle cap pieces I did combined bottle caps with vitreous glass tile.

    The link above that references my work points to the main page of of my ArtBuzz blog where there are only a few of my bottle cap pieces posted. To see all the work I’ve done with bottle caps check out my portfolio site here:
