Recycled Materials Come to Life!

We found an artist creating sculptured creatures from reclaimed tin. Will Wagenaar, has been a professional artist since 1972.

"In 1993 he opened a very experimental storefront on Miami Beach where he twisted all manner of found materials into new usable objects and fine art. A couple of years later the concept expanded to The Miami Design District. That larger workshop and gallery showcased over a dozen artist's work in reclamation art. Furnishings of all types, home accessories and fine art were displayed. Everything in the gallery was made of at least 80% recycled materials."
