Core77 has a photo gallery up of the new exhibit up at the Portland Museum of Contemporary Craft – ManufRactured. If you’re in the area, check it out on NW 8th and Davis, but the rest of us will just have to enjoy it online! It features works created from re-purposed manufactured goods and will be on display through January 9. Shown here is Régis Mayot’s carefully cut-out plastic bottles, the pieces from which he then uses to make patchwork lamps.
