Teeth

Christophe has a project titled MailArTeeth. You can see all his tooth-related mail art here.

He sent me this nice envelope and card to wish me happy 2017.







I've been contributing every now and again for a while now. Here's my latest contribution - I hope it made it, as it was 12 x 12 inches!

(And a confession - I mailed it in a mailing box and it sort of got stuck a little bit, fairly far inside - I couldn't get it to fall all the way into the box, so hopefully that didn't annoy a postal worker).

Update - it arrived in France, slightly bent, and not even postmarked!

Here it is before it's travels.



What do you think about teeth as a mail art topic?

Would you be grossed out or entertained by receiving something like this through the mail?

  1. Hi Phillip - it is certainly creative - and I love seeing your envelope to Christophe ... very clever - I wouldn't be grossed out at all ... just wouldn't like them dropping on the mat all day and every day!! Cheers Hilary

  3. I have contributed to the mail art call several times (a long ago). This is not my favourite theme, but no doubt it is original!

  4. I think this theme very original! Contributed twice so far but am inspired to create more (apart from the fact that I have to go to the dentist for the half year's check this afternoon).

    Most I like the thing Cristophe is wondering aloud in the introduction text on his blog: 'Why to have postage stamps teeth?'

    1. Haha, do you wish we could go back to 1840 when you had to cut the stamps out of the sheet yourself?

  7. Teeth wouldn't be my choice of mail art to receive, but overall I think the idea of mail art is so much fun! I've been enjoying reading your posts. They make me want to send out some mail art of my own!

  10. I would not like to be bitten by a set of Gnashers like those of the Screaming Sicilian.

  11. Mail art... it's a topic I can sink my teeth into. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I wanted to somehow tie in "takes a bite out of crime" but lacked the brain power.
