Unique Design – Transforming Ordinary Into Extraordinary

British artist Stuart Haygarth is above all else a storyteller. His practice revolves around commonplace or discarded objects which are diligently collected, meticulously categorized and skillfully assembled into elaborate unique design sculptures that whimsically imbue the banal and overlooked with beauty and grace by turning randomness and waste into order and symmetry.

For the artist, no object is unredeemable. In Haygarth’s hands, salvaged prescription spectacles, exploded party poppers, smashed car wing mirrors, ceramic figurines, and laboratory equipment become sculptural marvels of an exquisite unique design.
