Today we'd like to share with you an inspired piece of furniture created and built by Jessica Solis made with used pallets (bottom part) from our warehouse.
It is amazing to see how some used pallets can be transformed into a functional and unique piece of furniture. We are impressed!
Artist Jackie Bell Johnson. The piece is called "Beauty is the Beast" and can be seen at The Brand Library and Art Center 🔗. Jackie used pieces of organic cotton fabric, Merino Wool, and Camel wool from our factory.
We have been recycling paper, plastic and metal for many years but it has been difficult to find ways to recycle some of the other materials that are generated during our manufacturing process or we receive as part of packaging.
We contacted some local artists to show them what we have and Bob Hurton, our favorite print artist, printed some of his creations on wood panels we receive as dividers on our wood shipments.
Bob is currently teaching at The Garcia Center for the Arts in San Bernardino. Check out his upcoming workshop Introduction to Linocut Relief Printmaking here: Bob's Linocut 🔗
