Veronika Richterova's Repurposed Plastic Bottle Sculptures
Czech artist Veronika Richterová takes recycled plastic PET bottles and transforms them in to creative objects and sculptures including light fixtures, plants, and even animals! "When I found out by chance, that plastic bottles could be deformed by heat, I decided to create a sculpture from this material. Immediately, I had the idea that it could be called PET-art however, I took it only as one of my visual experimentations. I didn’t anticipate that plastic bottles would become such an obsession for me for many years. Since 2004 I have used thousands of bottles and have created hundreds of objects. In doing this work, I have developed many specific methods of technological processing."
