Art and Inspiration Clay Highlight Tools and Materials

Your Weekly Inspiration: Upcycling

Some artists who work with waste and urban surfaces to create the beautiful and unexpected.

All too often I fall into the trap of feeling like I can’t make the things I want to make because I can’t afford the materials I want to use. This week’s inspiration reminds me that people can make art and beauty out of anything.

Beauty from Waste: Sayaka Ganz

Upcycled Art: Gwangmyeong Upcycle Art Center

These artists help to remind me that it’s not a question of having the perfect materials or the ideal work space: the potential for re-forming and transformation is everywhere, in everything. I needed this message today, and I hope it motivates and inspires you as well.
