Functional Art made from recycled vinyl records

The shop opened in August 2007, born from the basic idea of using recycled materials, as a renewable resource, giving renewed purpose to items no longer usable. The records used in this shop are rescued from heading to the landfill, they are from a local record shop that are putting them out for trash.

    I am an artist and social worker striving to keep balance in my life. The creative side of me, keeps me sane. I love working with recycled materials and making items no longer useful functional again.
