Some artists like to be inspired over a nice bottle of wine; artist Scott Gundersen however, lets others enjoy the wine and makes art from the differently dyed corks. For his most recent portrait “Grace”, he used a total of 9,217 corks to create the beautiful and surprisingly detailed image. Be sure to see the video below for a time-lapse of the final 50 hours of the 200 hour project, and for how Gundersen cleverly organizes his corks by shade.
