artist spotlight: Stewart Haygarth

Born in Whalley, Lancashire, UK 1966, artist Stewart Haygarth, works on design projects revolving around the collections of objects. And, in a consumer driven world where much of it ends up in a landfill, I find this amazing that a creative genius can transform part poppers into a functional design. "The objects are normally collected in large quantities categorized and assembled in a way that transforms their meaning". Haygart's work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects using eyeglasses, clear and translucent objects, primarily made of plastic, and glass.

Also featured at top above is "Framed", a conceptual showstopper featuring lengths of colored picture frames bracketing a marble staircase for this year’s London Design Festival
