links to some cool places

Corky has  over 1900 corks only 3 corks had to be cut ...
he also has hundreds of beer bottle tops & beer can pull tabs ..
and two Crown Royal tops ..each cork was dipped  twice in polyurethane .  instead of signing the art work  .. Susie placed a clay peice of herself with a banjo head stock protruding from her head ... aka: Banjo Head . Corky  has 4 champagne corks and 2 plastic champagne tops !  Also Corky has only one blue cork .
He took a month to complete  and was very much a labor of love !
