We Are Want Not Waste Not

Collective of Artists

We’re working as a collective of artists, working individually to create a collection of objects responding to the restaurant Where The Light Gets In (WTLGI). Inspired by the restaurant’s closed loop ethos we are individually exploring new materials and uses out of waste. What unites us is our shared sensitivity to materials, attention to surface detail and our mindful approach to making by hand. Although using different media, we are all materials and process driven.

Who We Are

 A firm belief in sustainable, beautiful and low to zero-waste design defines our ethos. Working with Where The Light Gets In has pushed us to find more sustainable solutions around food waste, ash and broken ceramics, working as a closed loop.
