An exhibition of artworks made from recycled materials
Saturday 10th July to Saturday 14th August 2021
Sculpture, jewellery, mosaics, glass frames, lighting, homeware and furniture all made from reclaimed and recycled materials by artists who are dedicated to creating new art from old waste.
Professional sculptor Ptolemy Elrington creates 'hubcap creatures' working with recycled materials incorporating a regenerative eco aware theme in his work. Jake Partridge creates artworks from repurposed and recycled materials saving many skateboards from landfill and collecting dust in the back of skate shops and peoples garages. Adele Zaslawska makes mosaics to make people smile & to perhaps trigger fond memories, using the beautiful patterns & designs of old china, often incorporating a little bit of history with the maker's stamp. Anthony Harris is a glass artist based in Salisbury, relocating after working for fifteen years at the Royal College of Art to continue with his glass art and restoration business. His recycled frames incorporate artwork using silver and gold leaf adhered to a glass surface, drawing into the surface to reveal an image. Themes include birds, bees and blossom.
The exhibition also features the work of: 'J.A.M.S Ironwork' (lighting made from upcycled vintage materials), 'Rescue & Revive' (hand crafted gifts and sculptures using reclaimed, found and vintage materials including cutlery, stained glass, tin and driftwood), Rebecca Crawford (mobiles and jewellery using recycled plastic), Tom Sibbick (sculptures using recycled materials) and 'Badger & Birch' (Terrazo homeware crafted from waste mussel, oyster and scallop shells reclaimed from local seafood restaurants).
At Fisherton Mill, Salisbury 'Recreate' is a truly imaginative and inspiring exhibition running for 5 weeks and not to be missed!
Opening hours: Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm; Saturday, 9.30am-5.30pm
