Beautiful Art Made From Recycled Bottles

Every year millions of plastic bottles are thrown away. These bottles made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate), have been transformed by Miwa Koizumi into “PETs.”

I love the idea of using liquid containers to make water animals. Contained/containing, trash/not-trash, like the jelly-fish or anemone: Living/non-living

And I wanted some pets…

I use a combination of heat guns, soldering irons and different cutting utensils to make these PETs. I wanted to work with glass but this is more fun. I have as much material as I want just by fishing in the garbage.

more very cool pictures after the fold.

  2. Louise: Do you mean crafts involving old bottles? Well they could make bird feeders from old 2-liters, or they could make mobiles, or they could decorate them and make their own reusable water bottles. I am sure a bit of googling would find you plenty of other suggestions.

    Hope that helps
