Sarah Turner's Profile
Sarah Turner is an award winning eco artist & designer making beautiful products from waste materials.
Specialising in making decorative lighting from waste plastic drinks bottles, she reincarnates this waste material into a new life.
All the bottles are collected locally from cafes and households. Each bottle is then cleaned and sandblasted to give the opaque look then hand cut and sculpted into decorative forms. The waste bottles are totally transformed and it’s almost impossible to tell what they originated from.
Discarded plastic is such a huge environmental problem and only a small amount of plastic drinks bottle are recycled in the UK. So these lights aim to do something creative with them and overall save a few bottles from the landfill sites…
