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. Sian Peters developed her metalworking skills while working as a silversmith and jewellery maker for over 15 years and transforms vintage tins, ephemera and oddities into delicate, whimsical, humorous works of art. 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 artwork incorporates the themes of birds, bees and blossom and is created using silver and gold leaf adhered to a glass surface, drawing into the surface to reveal an image. Jenny Sterling, a third-generation silver and goldsmith makes handcrafted 'one of a kind' ethical jewellery made from recycled silver and gold. Her style is contemporary, bold and minimalist.
The exhibition also features the work of: 'J.A.M.S Ironwork' (lighting made from upcycled/ recycled/vintage materials), 'Electrickery (fantastic artwork using computer parts), '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 Sibbeck (sculptures using recycled materials) and 'Badger & Birch' (Terrazo homeware using shells from seafood restaurants).
'Recreate' is a truly imaginative and inspiring exhibition running for 5 weeks and not to be missed!
