Another South-African designer of recycled-bottle-lights: Heath Nash. A lot of the lamps in his “Other People’s Rubbish” series use multi-colored bottles, cut up into flower shapes, but I especially like this one, where the packaging parts are still identifiable as handles and spouts, etc.
“Over time… by dealing with so many bottles for so long, I started to see them differently. I started to see parts of them as objects in their own right. Initially I had understood them as purely colour, translucency and size. I was essentially ignoring their most obvious characteristic—their shape.”
