Work in Progress – Recycled Plastic Carrier Bag Snail Sculpture

Posted on: July 14, 2010

Since my last update the sculpture has started to take shape. The entire body is now constructed of individual carrier bags – hand knitted over a wire framework. The horns of the snail were knitted with smaller needles and the shell was attached with wire. I am now considering the underbelly of the snail and to use tied carrier bags to create further texture. It  would be interesting to photograph the sculpture outside together with the caterpillar sculpture I  made last year. All of these sculptures have been made from our household waste and I am beginning to collect clear plastic milk cartons to use in further art works. Your comments would be welcome.
