A door wreath for my Christmas Open Studio. The ring is made from plastic carrier bags sellotaped together, wrapped firmly with tape then wrapped with torn strips of old denim jeans. Finally, used the glue gun to stick on my collection of old cotton reels, a measuring tape and some buttons. I'm quite a bit in love with it and it cost me almost nothing :)
New York artist Josh Blackwell morphs a plastic carrier bag into a wonder of colorful stitching in a free-standing sculpture that’s a poster child for reuse and recycling. (At 11R on the Lower East Side through June 5th). Josh Blackwell, Neveruses (Unprincipled), plastic, wool, silk, paper, wire, foam, 15.5 x 15 x 4 inches, 2016.
