Artist Statement for the Website

Plastic, once hailed as a symbol of progress, now looms as a formidable threat to our society and environment. Its ubiquitous presence permeates every facet of our lives, yet its lasting legacy is one of ecological devastation and human suffering. A material engineered to endure for centuries is squandered in mere minutes, discarded without regard for its potential longevity. This paradox lies at the heart of our contemporary dilemma—a crisis of consumption and disposal that demands urgent action. At Precious Plastic Margaret River, we stand at the forefront of this movement for change. Guided by a steadfast philosophy, we challenge the prevailing narrative of plastic as waste, recognizing its inherent value as a precious resource awaiting reinvention. Our mission is clear: to transform discarded plastic into objects of utility and beauty, thereby offering a pathway to redemption for both material and maker. Central to our ethos is the humble plastic lid—a seemingly inconsequential artifact of our consumer culture, yet emblematic of our disposable mindset. While the world overlooks these overlooked objects, we see them for what they truly are: blank canvases brimming with potential. From combs to tables, splashbacks to benches, our creations breathe new life into these discarded remnants, each infused with the spirit of transformation.
To date, our efforts have yielded tangible results: over 10 tonnes of plastic lids diverted from landfills, granted a second chance at purposeful existence. In a country where lids are overlooked by traditional recycling systems, we have assumed the mantle of stewardship, offering them a new lease on life through our innovative processes. My name is Narelle Kuppers, and I am the visionary behind Precious Plastic Margaret River. Founded in December 2018, our project operates at the intersection of artistry and activism, harnessing the power of creativity to address the global plastic pollution crisis. Through local, grassroots initiatives, we strive to create a more sustainable future—one plastic lid at a time. In our workshop, discarded lids find new purpose as functional and aesthetically captivating works of art. From combs to surfboard fins, our creations span a diverse array of forms and functions, each imbued with the spirit of transformation. Yet, our work extends far beyond mere material reclamation; it is a testament to the power of grassroots activism in the face of global crisis.

Artist Statement for the Event Guide

Passion transforms recycled lids into purposeful art, igniting beauty, education, community, and sustainability at Open Studios Margaret River. Witness the power of creativity in repurposing waste for a better world.
