It’s impossible not to marvel at these stunning pieces by Gülnur Özdağlar which began their lives as plastic bottles. The Turkish architect who also works in graphic design, photography and digital art has been producing jewellery and home decorations from recycled PET plastic bottles since 2008. Through heating, melting, cutting and drilling, she reshapes the bottles to create beautiful organic forms. Her aim is “to create objects from things we have discarded that are so beautiful we want to wear or exhibit them,” therefore underlining the importance of recycling. The name given to these objects is ‘tertium non data’ which is Latin for ‘the third is not given.’ This is an alchemic term that refers to the process of combining two disparate elements to create a new, third element. These objects are available to buy on Etsy.
