What better way to round out this month's handmade inspiration than with some truly unique artists that take re-purposed and renewable resources to a truly imaginative level? From feathers exploding from your stove to psychedelic paper art, these artists' visions are anything but ordinary. Proceed with caution, though; these are not one size fits all, so you may want to check with your housemates before you install a massive feather sculpture in the kitchen.

Shown above the jump, from left to right:

1 Kate MccGwire: Kate's art explodes onto the scene with re-used and layered materials to create out of the box pieces. Her work is truly one of a kind and can take years to build with the variety of materials and shapes she chooses to create out of abstract ideas.

2 Jen Stark: Get entranced in paper art with Jen's mesmerizing patterns. She creates three-dimensional paper sculptures with bright colors that literally jump off of the wall.

3 Susanna Shap: Gorgeous palette knife art that deserves a center spot in any home, Susanna's take on palette knife art mixed with impressionism somehow moves while on the wall. She is a self-taught artist with an Etsy shop, Modern House Art, showcasing some of her unique pieces.

4 George Peterson: For the Skaters out there, let this re-use artist adorn your walls with his re-purposed skateboards. He creates unique, almost tribal art out of ridden and discarded skateboards that have a depth of color and individuality.

Hope that tops off your art-thirst for the homemade home month!
