“I reconfigured this chair using waste plastic and a self-built extruding machine. I produced a new back for the chair with waste HDPE blobby feet and a creepy hand rest from waste polypropylene.” - James Shaw
James Shaw is an explorer of the material landscape with a hands on approach. His work aims to interrogate the material, systemic and formal approaches to the creation of objects. Frequently his work considers the resources around us challenging the notion of ‘waste’ to create new beautiful materials. (Words of James Shaw)
