Polly dog

Artist: Molly O’Byrne

This work is made from recycled aluminium collected from our local scrapyard. I’ve separated strands from these leftover cable pieces from a local solar farm to create a frame for my dog’s figure then I added more pieces to make an image of Polly, my 10-month-old groodle. I love our new dog and my sister made an image of herself to pair with my sculpture “The solar industry is becoming increasingly aware that to be truly sustainable, we must find a way to reduce waste. But to date, most discussions have focused on recycling panels at the end of their lifespan.”
