Popping-Eye Pete – A Found Object Sculpture

It is so nice to meet you, Ladies! My name is Popping-Eye Pete but I prefer to be called Rusty Charmer :) . Julia put me together from all kinds of stuff she found at junk yards, flea markets and the beach. I’m so glad she did because I have so much fun discovering lots of amazing things. I’m very thirsty for knowledge and when I’m especially interested in someone or something, my right eye pops out, so that I can have a closer look. Like now, while looking at you :) .

I usually read and at the same time listen to an audio book on a totally different topic. Having a rusty pétanque ball as a head seems to help being a good multitasker. I would suggest, Julia should get such a head too. Oops, that was a bit naughty, wasn’t it? Hopefully I won’t get disassembled now. Maybe you can put in a good word for me.

It might be hard to believe but I’m a bit shy and don’t talk much. I rather like to attract someone’s attention by gently ringing the bell in my right hand and then holding up a piece of paper with my thoughts or questions. I hope you don’t mind.

We are so sophisticated over here. This advanced clothespin technology is all the rage at the moment, if you haven’t heard yet.
