You don't' necessarily need new materials to have a fresh look, maybe it's taking something you are familiar with and using it in a new way. Joe Rotella begins with art toys made with a little engineering. Then, it's a shadow box abstract with Cat Kerr. Finally, encaustic wood tiles are a new way to look at using encaustic techniques with Mary Hettmansperger.
