Who would have thought that combining plywood and recycled yogurt cups could look so damned good. (Or could look good at all…) But we are now believers.
Manchester, England’s Sarah Thirlwell combines her talent in traditional wood turning (FSC certified wood mind you) with sourcing and integrating recycled and reclaimed materials such as yogurt containers, vending cups and reclaimed acrylic to make vessels, vases, jewelry and larger scale installations.
We love the color pops, but also the way the wood neutralizes the color to make the vessels look fresh and modern (not to mention more versatile). And of course we love Sarah’s commitment to incorporating recycled materials into her work.
Can’t wait to see more.
