The pull tab, statab and ring pull form an endless inspiration for artists, crafters and artisant of all levels and backgrounds. Here’s a few examples.
Clare Graham – Los Angeles
Clare Graham is well know for his craftmanship in creating artwork and furniture using over 15.000.000 pull tabs.
Alart Lakke – Leiden
Artist and de-sculptor Alart Lakke from Leiden created several artworks from statabs which he has been collecting since 1991. The nature of his work is hard to translate for me from the Dutch language letter he sent us, but his work centres around creating absurd ecological anthropological suggestions.
Dutch artist Hinke Luiten made dresses from can-ends, here at the exhibition ‘Blik!’ in Deventer Stadsmuseum.
Syl de Mooy – Leiden
Syl de Mooy, also from Leiden, creates pull tab clothing and furniture.
