MICHELLE READER  

Wildlife sculptures made from reclaimed materials

                RECYCLED SCULPTURES OF WILDLIFE & NATURE


Michelle often takes her inspiration from the natural world, creating sculptures of birds, animals and plants using a wide range of waste materials.   These sculptures highlight man’s effect on the natural world in an age of mass consumption.  Materials are chosen for their shape, colour and texture.  Venetian blinds or coffee cups become feathers, a gas mask becomes the face of a bee, and plastic bottles are cut open to form the petals of a flower.
