Caught My Eye > Sham Patwardhan-Joshi
The Origomu site states that “Over 46,000 pieces of plastic litter are floating on every square mile of ocean today, killing 2 million sea birds and 100,000 marine animals every year, with many getting entangled in plastic six-pack rings.” To create awareness and re-use of plastic waste, Origomu invites and inspires people to make jewellery from these objects and shares the work on their site.
These are Sham Patwardhan-Joshi’s creations using six pack plastic rings, shells and thread. I loved the way it connects to the cause of saving marine life by using elements left over from settlements in the sea alongside elements left over from settlements on the Earth. Makes one think of what we contribute to the planet. The photography makes the creations look like undersea creatures and the names are evocative. Would love to see them for real.
