It’s 2012 and time for a new year of “What’s That?!”.

What is “What’s That?!” you ask? It’s a series of posts that showcase unbelievable creations that make you take a second look and ask yourself, “What’s That?!”

Here we go. Can you guess what these art pieces are made from?

How about if we take a closer look.
That’s right…buttons! Nevermind the obvious question of where Augusto Esquivel gets all of his buttons. Just look at the thousands of strings it must take for some of his art pieces.
Now that you’ve seen the work up close, imagine what it took to create these pieces.
And how in the world does he transport them?
I’m just at a loss of words when I see creations like this. So I’ll let Augusto’s words speak for themselves.
“I realize how insignificant and small a simple sewing button can be as it lays in my grandmother’s sewing box, but at the same time how unique and precious it can become as part of a work of art. Like an atom in a molecule, each button serves and shapes the whole. I hold the button to my ear and it whispers to me, “I want to be…..”
Until next time…

    I am smitten! And I guessed correctly too, but only because I know that you have a thing for the beauty of buttons just like me. And this is definitely a thing of beauty. Thank you so much for sharing, I might not otherwise have ever seen it. And wouldn't that be a shame?

    happy new year Michael!!
    xo, diane
