Each year since 2005, I've had the opportunity to work with The American Forest & Paper Association to create shadow-box awards for excellence in recycling. Since being a paper sculptor is a little like "hyper-recycling", it's a good fit! This year, the awards will go to a community, business, college/university and school who have had exceptional success promoting and practicing recycling efforts. I thought I'd share the process of creating these awards.These are my sketches for the finished awards. We felt a collage effect worked best to give each it's own theme.


  1. Very cool. Does my necklace count? Can I win too? ;-)

  2. Wonderful effort! I'm co-chair for an annual Recycled Art show sponsored by our local arts organization. We have earned PA State "Waste Watcher" awards and love them but they're not as cool as yours!!
