Richard Hackney is a maker with over a decade of experience in the industry. In trying to make his work more environmentally sensitive, the found, reused object features heavily in his work. His workshop is an Aladdin's Cave of treasures needing a new life. Everything from chandelier glass to old tools and copper jelly moulds are stacked up to the rafters on the shelving. He rummages though these items until something speak to him. The form of one item fitting the theme of another. Not only does this practice minimise the need for new raw materials it also captures the story of what the items used to be used for. What passed life did they have, and what new life will they have. These pieces are definitely not single use throw away items.
