Art From Garbage

  .

Henrythefish Angela Pozzi creates giant fish sculptures made from plastics gathered off local Oregon beaches.
Her latest project, Washed Ashore, is a collaborative multimedia effort to raise awareness and stimulate conversation about plastic debris in the ocean and washed up on beaches. Anybody who has stepped inside her Bioluminescent Sea Cave knows her passion for the ocean and the pleasure she takes in reinventing found objects. Her latest collection of larger-than-life sculptures are assembled from plastic scavenged from Oregon beaches. Pozzi says the Washed Ashore project is her biggest creative challenge yet. Abandoning the thrift store, using only materials donated or gathered from the beach has been a difficult evolution. She claims it is the ultimate creative challenge to work only with what you've got. Read more about Washed Ashore here and at www.oregonlive.org.
