Reclaimed Art with Old Doors and Lath

Reader Randall Otulakowski walks around town in Toronto scavenging for gems thrown away by others in the community.  He then takes that stuff to his 747 square-foot home and forms it into furniture and art — like the lath pieces here.  Randall told me in an email he’s been getting good feedback on his reclaimed art made with hollow core doors and a lath patchwork.  I think the feedback is right on; these are rich and full of statement.

        Randall, do you ever buy your items at the ReStore? We are happy to provide sustainable solutions to retail in our neighbourhoods, diverting reusable goods from landfills.
