Clothespin Sculpture

Giant Clothespin sculpture designed by Turkish artist and professor Mehmet Ali Uysal. It's located in Liege, Belgium. This is so clever. 

I wonder how many 20-somethings don't recognize this object! I have to admit that when I hear "clothes-pin" lately, I think of fashion boards on Pinterest. And I'm glad. 

Giveaway coming soon: Gorgeous package of 8 fat quarters from Comfort and Joy Fabrics on Etsy. Stay tuned!

Goodness! doesn't everyone use clothespins to keep the bread bag closed? The chip bag? The cereal bag? I'm always using those things for everything but clothes!

My first thought when I saw the photo you posted was that he certainly had way too much time on his hands.

oh that is wonderful.

JoAnne in southern California - don't panic. My 11 year old was able to identify it - the future of the world might be safe.

I love the way the clothes pin pinches the earth! I would like this for my front yard!

I use my clothes pins for chips, etc. too.
We had a "solar dryer" (clothes line) in the 80s when we were dirt poor, and it saved us lots in electricity. Just for towels, I'd have one now, but since I'm nursing a pinched nerve, I probably couldn't use it. Thanks for the pic of the art.

They may become collectibles, so I am saving mine!

Speaking as an uncommon 20 something....I recognize it and I use them frequently for the wash, crafts and chip clips. ;) -Brittany
