Tea Light

One of a series of products reusing waste packaging.

Looking into my council provided recycling box put out every week I began to see beautiful objects destined to be crushed and destroyed. Perhaps it was the secret hoarder in me or the injustice to see something well made and designed thrown away without a care that got me thinking of using them for something new. This second life resulted in a range of objects.

Concrete tea light holders cast from Dr Oekter paper case packaging. These have been sold in pop-up stores in Selfridges and Loft in Japan.
