Nothing goes to waste here! Even our old beehive boxes get a new lease of life by local artist Claudia Aalderink. Claudia takes rustic, weathered, and colourful beehive boxes, along with found materials such as wine barrel rings, pallet straps, and anything usable and transforms them into unique and one of a kind pieces of art. I've never met anyone who can take a basic discarded item and create such beauty like this before.
We love that the materials that could have ended up in the fire pile or landfill, are repurposed, recycled and reused in such an artistic and functional way. Thanks so much Claudia for your inspiration!
Check out Claudia's latest piece below, you can see Martin likes to write little notes on the outside of the boxes eg 'Ohui'.
