Reclaimed plastics

"The material used in the pieces solely comes from the scrap material of a year's worth of production work. Every extra scrap was saved (like an extra inch from a chair leg), was cut down, and rebonded into slabs. The slabs were then used to construct vessels that act as an archive of the past year's work." 


"I joined the Salvage Lab for the very simple reason- we share the same values. I'm always going to create things - that's who I am- but I have to do it responsibly, and for me, that means not buying new, keeping my studio practice a closed circuit, and using as many repurposed or second use materials as I can."
