Keeper Gallery @ gaffa
25 February - 25 March 2010
"Delve into the garages, spare rooms, bottom drawers, cupboards-below-the-sinks of any home and you will be overwhelmed by mountains of stuff - and most of it plastic. Wasted pens, retired TVs or vacuum cleaners or printers, piles of dirty styrofoam boxes and packaging, shopping bags...
Or a stroll down a busy street, a quick glance in a lunchroom waste-bin, a shortcut down a city alley...
Plastics - discarded, forgotten, superseded, broken. Sifting through this seemingly endless source of raw materials, i transform these everyday materials, utilising simple techniques, into wearable items of jewellery. A small and colourful fragment, new and re-invented, but with still a hint of its less glamorous past."
