Toby Fraley: The Art Of Recycling

August 29, 2014

By Tab Byrum

I Love Toby Fraley’s mission statement from his Artful Home page,
“Taking raw materials that are worth little to nothing and manipulating them into something that people appreciate is the basis behind what I do. “

Toby is a Pittsburgh artist and has a studio there where he works mainly in ceramic sculpture, Americana themed oil paintings and mixed media sculpture made from vintage materials and images he finds in old photos and vintage school books.

Toby takes what most people would or have discarded and turns it into something whimsical and fun.

I may need a plate or two and these robots are awesome, especially the bowling one.  Enjoy!!!!
