A word from Deborah
'Placticity is my new collection inspired by the impact of human activity on our planet. With our exploding population, transportation networks, agricultural methods, nuclear tests and energy production, our plastics and our cities, we have radically altered the chemical and biological composition of our land, air and water. We have damaged the planet so badly that we are entering a new epoch. The choice is ours whether we change things for the better or worse. For the past year or so, on each of my daily dog walks along the river, I have been collecting plastic litter - mostly single-use plastic bottles and bottle tops. With research and experimentation I have recycled this waste into a repurposed raw material. I cut, shape and file each piece and set it within metal structures which are directly influenced by the straight lines of human industry.'

The brooch measures 50mm by 45mm.
