Sarah thrives on the challenge of creating a beautiful product from waste materials. She analyses the natural properties and features of the waste material and takes advantage of them, using them in a new and different way.

Sarah’s designs prove that.... "just because a product is made from rubbish it doesn’t mean it needs to look like it does!"

Sarah's eco lights have been exhibited at prestigious shows in London, Milan, Paris, LA and locally in Nottingham where she is based.
