RECYCLED WITH LOVE COLLECTABLES

 

The Three Phases of Recycled with Love Collectables

There are three phases of Recycled with Love Collectables. The time span is about three decades. It ranges from early work that is how in The Gilbert-Jacobs Art Museum, the Recycled with Love Collectables business venture and Recycled with Love Collectables Revisited.

The Recycled with Love Collectables Business

Recycled with Love Collectables are accessories and small furnishings. Because they are made by hand from found-reused objects and materials, they are usually one-of-a kind. They are often decorative rather than utilitarian. This is due to their delicate nature. Collectables are made from metal, wood, plastic, glass, and wicker. Decorative media can include paint, fabric, ribbon and other notions.

Recycled with Love Collectables Revisited

I recently began revisiting Recycled with Love Collectables to create more of them just for fun. Since I had already covered a lot of acreage with painted decoration, I decided to use other media. These have included contact paper and duck tape.
