Rehabilitated Dishware





Like the Crackery Crockery from Ornamented Life that I shared with you a while back, Sarah Cihat’s Rehabilitated Dishware brings new spirit and beauty to tableware that had been condemned to a life of rejection. Buying dishes from second-hand stores and retailers’ seconds piles, Cihat re-glazes and modernizes them with a new color and new design. The results are delightful, graphic and playful, all the while making you feel good about giving a loving new home to (what would have been) a stray. Cihat originally started this study of sustainability and renewal as a project for her thesis, and now sells the unique pieces in select boutiques and online.

Science + Art




Artist Michael Bartalos has teamed up with the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco for a special project that brings together two of my favorite things: science and art. His current project is an ongoing piece called The Long View, wherein he will create sculptures using recyclable goods found in Antarctica. He’ll document his progress on the Academy of Sciences blog, as well as on his own website. I, as a lover of found-object art with a purpose, am excited to see something that promotes sustainability awareness with flair.
