Sarah Turner is an eco artist and designer who upcycles waste materials into new and beautiful creations. She works mostly with plastic bottles and cans, transforming them into unique lighting, pictures, sculptures, flowers and gifts.
All of Sarah’s work is made in her studio in Nottingham from waste materials she collects from local homes and businesses. With some highly skilled cutting and intricate sculpting she transforms these discarded materials into high quality, unique designs.
Her work proves that.... "Just because a product is made from rubbish it doesn’t mean it needs to look like it does!"
I specialise in using recycled and upcycled wood that I have salvaged (may contain traces of pallet). I enjoy making things from wood, pottering in my shed is my way of relaxing, and I'd ultimately like to turn my hobby into my full time job. I love hunting for suitable wood (my daughter reckons I can spot things in a skip before she's even seen the skip) and the challenge of making something useful out of something that would just be scrapped.
I have always had an interest in environmental issues in particular recycling & reusing, which to me seems common sense. Any pieces of wood I salvage that I can't use is either recycled or passed on via reuse sites for firewood.
If you've any queries or have an idea for something you'd like made feel free to message me at email@example.com
Saving unloved wood one piece at a time!
Our ethos is to make beautiful gifts and home wares by recycling unwanted or foraged materials. Each piece is unique, individually hand-made by us so you'll never find an exact copy!
We mostly use pallets, reclaimed wood or driftwood, combined with anything else we might lay our hands on, and m inor defects from the materials' original function add character to each piece. We aim to take something which is dead, and give it a new lease of life!
Hand made crafts and gifts, made by Rachel and Ruth, a mother and daughter team. We use wool from either our own rare-breed sheep or local farmers, as well as eco friendly or pre-loved textiles and recycled materials.
We spin, dye, knit, crochet, weave, sew and felt to create a range of beautiful items. We take inspiration from the natural world.
