Paying the price for waste.

Work by Annette Koehnen



Using waste as a resource is a good thing, but then the recyclers complain there is not enough. When nobody used waste, there was too much and now there is not enough. If we’re heading in the right direction at last, how come the oceans are still full of plastic? No one wants to have to go looking for waste, they want fresh stuff delivered and just-in-time. Where is the incentive for raking around in the mess left by generations past?


Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

Work in progress
