David Archer Recycled Art

After fixing a broken table lamp David discovered a passion for creating lamps and other objects from items destined for the scrapheap or worse; landfill. David uses as much of the item as possible and only discards parts for safety purposes, such as electrical wiring and fittings that do not meet current safety standards. The rest is kept for future use or recycling.

David takes pride in the use of the unusual and looks forward to the challenge that every new idea brings. Having discovered that other people also like this kind of art he is forever experimenting with lamps and more recently, furniture. Woburn Art Gallery love his unique talent and are proud to have his work. David also volunteers in the gallery. We can't wait to see what he produces next.
