Need to spice up your greenhouse? Start a Crash Bonsai garden!

CrashBonsai is the creation of John Rooney, an artist who is torn between the desire to create and destroy. Recently, he has been making bonsai plants, and combining them with model cars and trucks which he has creatively smashed and melted, to create “CrashBonsai,” little living car crash sculptures.

My first car was a 72 Chevelle, just about exactly like the one above, except for the tail lights. In it, I learned the value of not braking in an icy parking lot with light poles. It wound up looking eerily similar to the photo at the top of this post, but mine was smashed on the passenger side front, and still driveable for about a year longer.

Have you created unconventional ornamental arrangement? Does the term Junk Yard mean the same to you as to most people? Add photos of your disaster recreations to the Make Flickr pool.
