Dental Revelation ~ Pink Saturday

Please don't be jealous my Pink Saturday blogger friends.

I'm going to show you photos of my dentist and his office. 
Yes - that is a pink and purple polka-dot rinsing bowl. 


and...yes that is my dentist, Dr. Pinkly. I'm joking about his name being Dr. Pinkly. He does have a colorful name though, it's really Dr. Greenly. He doesn't dress like this in the office and I usually can't see his wings even though he is an angel. 
Have you ever seen a dental service unit like this before?
It's the largest art collage I've ever seen.  It's called "Dental Revelation" and it's located in the reception area of Penn's Commons Dental Group, LTD. It is the vision of local artist, Peter Jon Snyder.  Peter used a 1930's dental service unit, paint, markers, plaster, computer imaged ceramics, cement, tiles, mirrors, and various found dental objects in the piece. All that pink journaling behind the piece is reflective of the artist's feelings and thoughts about the staff and the service they provide. I share his feelings too. 
If you would like to meet the artist, here is a U-Tube video of Peter working on a gallery display of his work. All of you mixed-media pinkies who love to up-cycle things in your art will enjoy listening to Peter talk about how he creates his art. 

Thank you Peter and Penn's Common Dental for allowing me to share this!


I'm linking to the Pink Saturday blog party at How Sweet The Sound. Please hop on over to say hello to our hostess Beverly and visit some of our P.S. party crowd.
