Discarded bottle caps become amazing home decor accessories in the hands of Rick Ladd. The designer stacks and masses the beverage tops to create these astonishing mirror frames, chairs and cabinets.

The artist says, "I have found inspiration in many things, including folk and outsider art, grottos and sculptural environments, and Burmese temples. I am drawn to forms that I would describe as obsessive, accumulative, whimsical, and overly ornamental."

Personally, I love the ingenious and colourful designs of Ladd, but the practical me says there are too many dust collecting crevasses.
