'Industrial waste- cog plates and pipe lights'

'Industrial waste- cog plates and pipe lights'

Thousands of tons of industrial waste are desposed of regularly. Within the motor industry there are so many beautifully crafted pieces of metalwork that get discarded. I have scavenged all over cheshire to find the hidden treasures within the motor industries scrap. Taken out of context these items of waste become beutiful industrial works of art.

I use glass to trap a ghost of the items that surround me. The glass brings a level of quality to the pieces and takes them beyond their original form. It also creates new function making something that was once nothing more than scrapable into a functional piece for the home. Both the cog plates and the pipe light bring a sense of industrial aesthetic to any home.
