I made this lamp from an old church candlestick and an old black straw hat transformed it into the lampshade. I found this hat after an old lady forgot it on a church candlestick.

It makes me think of these old ladies you meet at the church on Sunday mornings, all dressed up, in dark colors.

It is a tall and elegant lamp that will find its place in the living room or on a side table in the bedroom.

I moved into a new house with a small South facing conservatory. It was looking a bit bare and could do with some greenery.

Unfortunately, I’m rubbish at looking after house plants successfully. I usually kill them within a year. Plus the fact, in Summer it can reach temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius in there.

So I decided to make some some that didn’t require any care or water. The small succulent plants are pinecones painted green.

Materials: Cereal packet card, corrugated cardboard "mache”, adhesive and acrylic paint.

This lamp was made out of an upcycled old wine wood box. The lamp can be hanged by the wire as a pendant lamp or be transformed into a table lamp.

The black fabric electric wire snakes through the box.

What can you make from a piece of heating pipe, a steam iron, a kitchen utensil and other shiny metal parts? How about a hornbill?

Since a couple of years, I've been making objects out of metal parts form all sorts of machines and devices. This is one of my first projects and still one of my favorites. It was a nice challenge to get all parts connected without showing screws or bolts and nuts.

I'm always looking for vintage patterns and I scale them to the scale of the box to stick them on and give the box this vintage effect. This what we call upcycling.

But, what is Upcycling?

Recycling is the use of an object at the end of its life for the same use as the original one. Glass bottles are recycled into glass bottles.

Upcycling reuses an object in another function, it is a recycling from the "top".

It's not customization, a redesigned chest of drawers remains a chest of drawers.

Upcycling changes the function of the object, a metal box becomes a lamp, we also talk about the diversion of objects.

The ecological benefits are significant, reducing the volume of waste and avoiding the use of natural resources. It is also a creative work that makes it possible to invent unique objects because it is sometimes difficult to find a large quantity of objects to reuse.

Upcycling is practiced whatever the waste, fabric, paper, wood, furniture….. the principle being to reduce our waste, we do our shopping in the garbage!

Because every action counts, many of us take from our garbage cans or set up recycling facilities.

Upcycling reduces our carbon footprint, each purchase of upcycled items is an ethical and virtuous purchase

I transform:

  • Bottles and jars in vases
  • Books in trees
  • Jars in lamps
  • Metal cans and cans in lamps…

We've built this front hub pendant light out of recycled bike parts.

Freewheel characteristics:

  • Freewheel hub
  • Black socket.
  • 18 tooth single freewheel cog.
  • 18 stainless steel spokes.
  • Choice of nipple colors.
  • 2 7/16” Flat metal cap with metal barrel cord grip.
  • 10’ cord Length
  • 60 watt LED dimmable Edison Bulb.
  • Fully UL Listed
  • All mounting hardware included

The premium cloth covered electrical wire has a great texture, flexibility, and feel. A mixture of black and white individual threads creates this unique pattern.

The construction is of SVT-B wire features 3 conductor wires (positive, negative and ground) insulated by a PVC housing and finished with a high-quality braided rayon cloth cover.

This wire is fully UL Listed, which is demonstrative of our commitment to providing safe, high-quality products.

The rated voltage for this wire is 300V. If you need a 2-conductor cord, you can simply clip the third wire (green) and leave it unused.

We use a stylish solid brass keyless light socket & include a 60 watt LED Edison bulb for an early 1900's era feel.

When you are a part of a society where you need to give something on every occasion, it should be wrapped in some artistic envelope and why not make it with old book covers?

I have made several envelopes with various designs using upcycled old brown book covers which were no more useful to anyone. It takes me only a day to design every new envelope.

The things that you require is artistic skill because when you know how to paint a brown paper, then you can create several designs.

To build these cardboard vases, I used recycled cardboard, glue, and varnish and experimental techniques. Cardboard and tinted plaster of Paris and varnish.

Both partly inspired by rough handicraft containers, often made from native plant material in different parts of the world.

Again dry cardboard and adhesive. It's a lengthy process, particularly in the case of the large piece.

These cardboard vases have been exhibited in a couple of local art shows in Shrewsbury. U.K.

Dimensions: 36cm high for the larger one and 22cm high for the smaller one.

The old white picket fence around our corner lot had rotted away and though we considered just removing it, we ultimately decided we wanted a new fence.

I designed and constructed the new one around a supply of salvaged redwood fence boards and posts, as well as some miscellaneous lengths of salvaged, full-dimension redwood lumber.

I wanted a fun and inviting look, so I incorporated a long wave that spans two sections (16 ft./~4.8 meters). Because I needed to trim, plane and route various parts (as well as removing any stray nails and screws), it took much longer than if I had simply purchased new lumber, but I was very pleased by the result.

Several years on, I'm constructing the matching gates we initially -- thought with mostly new materials for the gate frames since I wasn't able to locate enough old 2x4s.
