The auto parts used this time is recycled tire rubber, which is otherwise go waste or burnt to get rid of. The artist presents ‘Black Ruby’ housewares collection that anyone of you would love to put on your dining table. In order make Black Ruby collection, Wijskamp developed a technique that recycles widely available rubber powder into objects that are waterproof as well as functional.
Further, she created small pebbles out of powdered rubber, fastened them with polyurethane binder and finally stacked them into a series of decorative containers. The collection includes cups, plates, bowls and vessels that look amazing and different at the same time. However, using it for food won’t be safe. This weirdly wonderful collection will be available only through the designer.
