“Hubcap Creatures” Are Works Of Art That Teach Us A Lesson In Upcycling

Ptolemy Elrington scours the sides of highways for old, discarded hubcaps and upcycles them into stunning works of art. He’s been creating his “Hubcap Creatures” for over 12 years now, and they sell for between $400 and $12,000! His background is in theatre set construction, and these building skills combined with the creativity of that industry have obviously served him well. Check out this compilation of his unique creations!
