coloured plastic tops arranged, stacked, balanced, knocked down then rearranged

Over the past couple of years I have been saving the coloured plastic tops from the containers before I recycle them. There are some duplicates, but my intention is that each one is unique. Individually they are beautiful, but together they are perfect. The colours are unlike colours that can be printed, painted or displayed on a screen. When placed together amazing combinations and extraordinary relationships occur.

Playing with them, arranging, grouping, stacking, is a joy. They are like children’s building blocks, each a component from a larger family of parts.
