Over lockdown, I began collecting tins, jars and glass bottles. I felt that it would be interesting to see if they could be repurposed into new products which can be recycled and not thrown away. I used all existing yarn and string to cover the existing objects. This created a lovely textured finish. Due to my love for the sea I decided to include seaglass and shells on the exterior finish of the objects. This softened the finish but also added detailing and a connection to the natural environment.
I believe it is incredibly important to reuse our existing items, which allows them a new lease of life.
