SUNFLOWER WINDMILL and workshop for Lush Summit

I was commissioned in 2018 to create a sculpture for Lush UK, for the Lush Summit at Old Billingsgate Market. I collected waste materials from the Lush Green Hub in Poole, Dorset to create a sunflower windmill. Materials included office chair bases, bed slats, soap moulds, plastic pots, foam from an old costume, metal shelving struts and plastic bottles. I also took along lots of other materials from the green hub including packaging and ribbons, and ran a flower-making workshop during the event.


Dimensions of sculpture: 240 x 85 x 95cm
