Rhinoceros - Recycled Coffee Pods - Small

Rhinoceros - Recycled Coffee Pods - Small

Godfrey Dambuleni (Click to read profile)
600w x 300h x 200d 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 of different sizes, here a cheerful rhinoceros in gold and purple. This is the smallest of three available sizes.
