This week we are featuring work by the artist Ptolemy Elrington.
Born in the South of England and growing up in the North, Ptolemy studied Art and Design at Bradford and Ilkley Community College during the mid-eighties. His sculptures are of natural forms and are created from recycled plastic hubcaps.
His work has been commissioned by the likes of DEFRA, The Eden Project, The Environment Agency and the R.S.P.B.
Ptolemy has also made TV appearances on Richard and Judy and Blue Peter.
So what would you expect to pay for these masterpieces? Well, they fetch anything from £200 to £10,000, not a bad conversion rate for recycled plastic.
Further sculptures can be viewed on his website. http://www.hubcapcreatures.com
