How Grate Owl Art

Hootie the Owl is created from a vintage grater, peeler, tea infuser, bottle opener and finished with an aluminum vintage spade cookie cutter. He asked not to be painted as he is sensitive to enamel. So, I left him in his original form. Rust gives character anyway. Picked up all these odds and ends at a local flea market. I won't mind if he doesn't sell as I have grown very fond of this wise guy.
