Anything can become art in the hands of a true talent. Stephanie Kilgast takes discarded items like cans, broken plates, jars and sculpts around them, giving the trash new lives as pieces of art.
The French artist uses polymer clay to create nature-inspired forms sprout from the found objects. "My work is an ode to life, where plants and fungi meet insects, animals, and minerals," she writes on her website. "These encounters are growing in a colorful swirl of diversity, and the erratic growth develops on found objects, in a dialogue between humanity and nature."
