Foam! What is it good for? Making art and furniture, apparently

Back in 2000, Brazilian artist Carla Tennenbaum discovered that the packaging material EVA foam can not be recycled and was clogging up landfill sites. Disappointed, she decided to take action and recycle the foam herself. As only an artist could, she created a range of beautiful and unusual works of art and pieces of furniture, like the ottoman pictured below.

You can find out more and see the full range of Carla's works via her website, but you can see my favorite over the page. And if you're inspired, maybe you'll decide to make your own!
