Fresh Catch

There are about three 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 pf already stressed ocean populations.

Fresh Catch is a series conceived from derelict lobster traps salvaged off the coast of New England. The traps are carefully deconstructed and then organically rearranged and assembled into functional objects. Each one of a kind piece expresses the unique qualities that develop from years of tossing in the ocean.
