The inspiration for Kitty Calvert's unique one off sculptures, comes from a love of vintage and a desire to re-use and recycle unique pieces of discarded treasure, Evoking cherished memories of childhood and making new cool stuff out of old cool stuff.
We invite the viewer to reflect on the concept of waste in the world, of recycling that waste into a new form and the potential journey each individual memory carrying piece of treasure has made to its final resting place inside the sculpture. In today's world where things are designed with obsolescence in mind, we find there is a hankering for things that last. Sometimes these are things from our past.
With the sculptures, we have given them a new life. Seeing the pieces recycled, revived and restored, reimagined, reborn and reinvigorated in a way that brings new joy to a new audience
