Elephant - Recycled Coffee Pods - Large

Godfrey Dambuleni (Click to read profile)
700w x 600h x 400d mm

Godfrey started experimenting with Nespresso coffee pods towards the end of 2019. A committed recycler, with most of his work using recycled metals as the main material, he realized the environmental challenge presented by the 'throw away' pods, as well as the opportunity the material presented for something new. Using a wire frame as a base, he first flattens each pod and then glues it into place, a painstaking process requiring patience and a steady hand.

He applies the technique to a variety of animals, here a regal golden elephant trumpeting a challenge to the world. This is the largest of three available sizes.
