The Recycled Moth Collection


Michelle Stitzlein is an artist who has both these creative skills along with tons of patience. Michelle has created a dazzling “Moth” series of recycled artwork made from items including car license plates, car parts, piano keys, broken china ware, tin cans, electric wire and bottle caps among other stuff that might just be rusting in your garage. She takes about three weeks, working eight hours a day to design a single moth, which can be broken down into different pieces and carried from place to place for reassembly.

Michelle began working on this series in 2003, inspired by the myriad varieties of beautiful, exotic moths in her own backyard. The series of more than 14 wall hung sculptures moths range in size from 3 to 11 feet.
