debbie wijskamp has sent us images of her project ‘black ruby’, a series of bowls and pots which have been made from an unlikely material –
the recycled rubber-powder of car tires in combination with polyurethane binder. the collection of vessels are constructed from small
pebble-like spheres of the industrial medium which the dutch designer uses as the components for building up each individual piece.

  • Love that tires are being used as decor elements. But…um, the manifestation of material looks like giant deer pellets arranged by small spacemen to use as ships.
