Ipswich: Plastic fantastic horse to go on display at Suffolk Show
THIS magnificent sculpture is a real feast for the eyes – but it’s made using just disposal pieces of cutlery.
Student Sam Hadgraft wanted to make something out of nothing, so he set about creating art from throwaway objects.
Using 3,500 plastic knives, forks, spoons and cups, he has built a majestic horse, a prowling tiger and a wingspread heron.
The 20-year-old is a pupil at Suffolk New College currently in his second year of a national diploma in art and design.
He said: “I wanted to make something out of nothing. I like animals and the project is part of my final major art project. We can choose what we like and I thought these were interesting animals in the media I have used.”
Creative art tutor Amanda Winnick said: “Sam is a dedicated student and he works hard and this shows in his work. He has a natural talent for 3D. I think his work is exciting and particularly like the use of materials.”
A chimpanzee and a wolf are also planned to complete the series.
