Recycling Sculpture by Tony Cragg

British-born sculptor Tony Cragg  uses color families and a carefully curated collection of flotsam and jetsam in his large-scale installations. Born in Liverpool, Cragg  has an amazing collection of pieces made from found materials from household trash to construction refuse. We love the impressionistic charm of his pieces- gorgeous and graphic from far away, intricate and detailed from up close.
From afar, Cragg’s  installations take the shape of graphic forms, even one as a British flag. But up close and personal, the colorful shapes are made from things like toothbrushes and metal washers, all painted to create a stunning and colorful piece. His other sculptures include wood furniture, all of which are reclaimed.
