To make the vases, Linnenbrink lops off the top of a used plastic bottle, inserts a smaller vessel inside, and pours the resin in layers around it, occasionally throwing in small pieces of Styrofoam to lighten the load. “It’s interesting: What I do to recycle two bottles is I fill the gap with resin, which is an oil product,” Linnenbrink laughs. “That Pom bottle on the right reminds me of Brancusi’s Endless Column. It sort of shows how ideas travel from an art context to an everyday one, and then an artist comes along and pulls it right back into their world.”
