Reduce, Reuse…ReCircles

ReCircles wind sculptures are made from a variety of reused items including cookie tins, signs, bakeware, license plates and a variety of other recycled light sheet metals.

For several years I played with designs for a wind sculpture based on concentric circles, held together with swivel spinners. The idea initially was to have sheet metal cut in the shapes I needed. In 2007 I began hand-cutting a few prototypes from light metals I had easy access to.

What began as a make-do measure quickly became an important part of the design as I watched the variety of colors, textures & printed images play off one another.  And ReCircles were born.

 ReCircles continue to be made from recycled materials
and are available made-to-order.
