Sarah Turner Eco Art & Design Sarah Turner is an eco artist &  designer who specialises in making decorative lighting from waste plastic drinks bottles. All products are handmade, a variety of drink bottles are reused to create this gorgeous lighting range. The bottles are collected, cleaned and sandblasted to give an opaque look. They are then cut and formed into the beautiful shapes, totally unrecognisable from their original state.
