Recyclart LogoThis week, my art was featured on Recyclart.com, a website that highlights creative uses of recycled materials.  I submitted some of my animal assemblages for consideration, and they ran an entry on them on Monday. Here is the direct link to that article:

Animals in the Discarded Wild

There are about 2-3 features a day on the site. There is a wide range of creations, everything from the artful to the practical, using the most unlikely things. For instance, one post shows a palette being used as floating shelves. In another, an old rotary phone is ingeniously turned into a clock, which both works well with the face of the phone, even if its numbers may be a bit disorienting in relation to the clock.

In their own words:

The goal of Recyclart.org is to bring you good products that are made from recycling, reusing, upcycling, etc. We will not bother you with a lot of text or details, we prefer to give you inspiration through pictures and the links where you can find more informations. The goal is to be a kind of portfolio based on  ideas in which you can brainstorm your sustainability creativity.

The site itself is well-designed and meets their above-mentioned goals well. The layout and large pictures make it easy to focus on each entry, and not get lost in the site. I highly appreciate their emphasis on allowing the placing of links alongside the pictures. They provide a great service by allowing exposure for all the ideas, art and products they showcase, and the ability for people across the globe to share them with each other.
