There is a wholesome air about Hollin. Much evil must befall a country before it wholly forgets the Elves, if once they dwelt there.

–J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring, Book 2 Chapter 3

The Department of Extraordinary Upcycling is celebrating the new year by enjoying these shiny metal birbs created by South-Carolina based artist Matt Wilson using old silverware and pieces of driftwood or old lumber.

To look at spoons and forks in the silverware drawer, you wouldn’t think they were particularly birdlike, but Wilson’s silverware birbs feel so lifelike, it’s as though we’ve been using our silverware wrong all this time until he came along figured out just what to do.

Follow Matt Wilson on Instagram to keep up with his latest works of upcycled metal sculpture, some of which he puts up for sale in his Etsy shop.

ETA a source: these are from the book We Go to the Gallery by Miriam Elia, who is now in danger of being possibly sued by Penguin for, as they claim, infringing on the Ladybird brand.

Page 34: ‘“The balloon is worth $58million and if you touch it the security guards will call the police,” says Mummy.’ This almost actually happened:Jeff Koons, Serpentine Gallery, 2009.

And that awkward moment when you didn’t realise Penguin had bought Ladybird.
