Veronika Richterová is a Czech artist that creates sculptures and objects from repurposed plastic PET bottles. For the last decade the artist has developed various methods of cutting, heating, and assemblage to build colorfully translucent forms of everything from crocodiles to chandeliers to plants.

Her obsession with plastic bottles doesn’t stop with creating artwork, she has also collected over 3,000 PET plastic objects from 76 countries and she wrote extensively about the history and usage of plastic in her article A Tribute to PET Bottles. A few of Richterová’s plastic chandeliers are currently included in the 50-artist exhibition Eden Unearthed at Sydney’s Eden Gardens, on show until February 2018.

You can see more recycled works in the form of cacti, animals, and more on the artist’s website
