Reduce, Reuse, Make Art

I found this new artist Michelle Brand out of the UK. Her art is amazing. She reuses the bottoms of pastic bottles to make these these stunning pieces of art. Check out her website

The following is from her about page...

"The root of my interests lies in sustainable waste management.

At present it has manifested itself into a designer maker practice.

I have designed an aesthetic and decorative fabric from which most people in the
western world would perceive to be waste/rubbish.

The fabric is composed of plastic drinks bottle bases, which have been cut,
sanded and then tagged together.

I love seeing design opportunities where most people only see problems "
