When you toss a used plastic bottle into recycling (you are doing that, right?) chances are you don’t give much thought to where it might end up. Certainly you wouldn’t imagine it becoming a piece of art. But Czech artist Veronika Richterová does. In fact, she imagines all sorts of creations from plastic bottles and has amassed a collection of impressive sculptures she calls “PET-ART“. Below you can find some examples of what she does, ranging from cacti to animals and even jellyfish.
