caroline saul: plastic makes perfect

These painterly vessels appear to be delicate translucent porcelain with surface designs akin to burnt velvet, raku and nuno felt.

Clever Caroline Saul tricks the eye with her weightless sculptural containers, which are actually made from recycled plastic milk bottles.  Saul melts and fuses the plastic into sheets she tints, cuts and shapes to create small bowls, large plump orbs and installation sized vessels. I was pulled in by the colors and quickly caught in the net of shadows cast by the lacy structures.

My passion lies with the creation of new materials from objects that might otherwise be thrown away. The development of my recycled plastics leads to the creation of sculptural bulbous vessels.
