Leftovers: an art endeavor that creates a bright new purpose for yesterday’s scraps.
Putting my own personal twist on upcycling, I create solar-powered ART LAMPS for outdoors by repurposing materials from thrift stores, yard sales, bicycle and tire shops. With repeating patterns, layers, light, and reflection, the whole far exceeds the sum of its parts. With our homes overfilled with art, I seek to adorn the patio, porch, gate, shed, and pathway with purposeful light and entertaining patterns. My vision includes being as green as possible, using only locally-sourced materials to minimize carbon footprint, and the lamps are lit by solar, so no bulky extension cords for these lamps, and the lamps can be left unattended without risk of fire. The solar-powered lamps work well in a sunny yard, and transform the pleasing daytime designs into inflated nighttime patterns, casting influence over an extended area. Each ART LAMP is one-of-a-kind!
