Plastic art

Recycled straws become sculptures.

Italian artist Francesca Pasquali creates incredible three-dimensional artworks made from thousands of plastic straws. Speaking about her work she says, “Even if plastic is a new material, the technique of interlacing it in pre-constituted nets is connected to the past. It makes it live again in the shape of sculpture, which spreads out towards the space around, creating various textured effects. Observing nature itself, I transfer the essential being of it. The interlacing forms transform the industrial material into soft and sensual shapes.” Simple, beautiful and alive.
