There are about 3 million lobster traps in Maine’s waters and more than 100,000 are lost each year. Lost or abandoned lobster, crab and other traps plague coastal waters around the globe putting pressure on a number of already stressed ocean populations. Fresh Catch is a series conceived from derelict lobster traps salvaged off the coast of Maine. The traps are collected by way of on-site foraging expeditions along the coast of New England. They are carefully deconstructed, then organically rearranged and assembled into one-of-a-kind, sculptural pieces of furniture.
This Shelf is made from a salvaged lobster trap that has been welded and has had a powder coated finish applied.
