One man’s trash is another artist’s treasure.

Michael Papadakis, who hails from Colorado, uses a garbage lid to burn his masterpieces into wood.

The 30-year-old artist uses a piece of reflective material over the lid to create a vacuum inside. The results are parabolic designs that are burned into place by refracted and reflected by sunlight, he told Caters News.

See how he does it in the video above.
