Eco artist Sarah Turner creates unique lamps from locally collected waste, including plastic bottles. She transforms trash into some rather amazing designs for interior decoration. She sent us a heads up on her work, and we agree that it's something you don't want to miss.

According to her site, Sarah collects all the bottles used in her products from cafes and households.

"Each bottle is then cleaned and sandblasted to give the opaque look then hand cut and sculpted into decorative forms. The waste bottles are totally transformed and it’s almost impossible to tell what they originated from. Discarded plastic is such a huge environmental problem and only a small amount of plastic drinks bottle are recycled in the UK. So these lights aim to do something creative with them and overall save a few bottles from the landfill sites."

The lamps are available on Etsy and a handful of select shops. However, you can also commission a lamp that is made especially for you to suit your taste.
