Recycled Plastic

Upcycled Toys from Plastic Bottles

None of my toys had a previous plan; instead, I checked the plastic bottles I had stored, and their shape suggested what objects I should make. I started making these toys over 20 years ago and used them to build a project for my Post-graduate course Teaching Visual Arts for Primary and Secondary Schools.

I reuse plastic bottles from domestic products in general and tie the pieces together using a fishing line. As I said before, I don’t usually do a project beforehand; the container shapes suggest to me what can be made out of them and the possibilities to be explored. The result is exclusive colorful toys.
