Wait till you see what these become!
Wandering the net again to old places and new. Whilst on my travels I stopped at casasugar via sfgirlbybay and discovered the amazing and oddly beautiful work of Stuart Haygarth. Since 2004 he has been working on design projects which revolve around collections of objects. Stuart says "The objects are normally collected in large quantities categorized and assembled in a way that transforms their meaning. My work is about giving banal and overlooked objects a new significance. The finished piece of work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects." Working in the lighting industry and living within a swallows swoop of the area in which this guy is based you would hope I had already heard about stuart's work before, but alas I find out third hand from the girl in san francisco! The tide chandelier is so beautiful. Made from man made debris that was washed in with the tide on the kent coastline. Very inspiring way to recycle.

That chandelier is so amazing. It is fantastic that something so ordinary can be turned into something beautiful. Re your last post, I am leaning more to grey too. It is a great Autumn colour!
