For my Senior Project I decided to focus on recycling. I found alarming statistics about the amount of trash in the environment, so I set out to do something about it. Through extensive trial and error I developed a process where flimsy plastic bags are turned into beautiful works of art. I went on to make two furniture pieces, a milk stool and a side table.
These pieces received national recognition and continue to inspire people to recycle. I was a finalist in the IDSA's IDEA competition, Honorable Mention in the Red Dot competition, received Bronze in the A'Design Awards, became the Student Winner for the Design Arts of Utah competition as well as Best of Show by Flint Studios for our Senior Show.
