Recycle artist Corinne Okada creates beautiful sculptures and wearable art that draws on her Japanese heritage and ties to Hawaii. Referring to childhood visits with relatives in Hawaii, Okada says: "I appreciate the way people were able to use what they had to create something beautiful, how they'd make clothes with rice bags." Inspired by what she saw, she dedicated herself to creating sculptures and wearable hats and corsages from scrap pieces of fabric, recycled plastic produce netting, and Asian food and candy wrappers. Takara's whimsical paper-and-wire hats are inspired by Japanese hair ornaments and Okinawan dance hats. The Big Rolling Ball Hat (above), with the large flower in the middle, is a great example of Okada's artistry. The 'Olive Wrapper Shoe' (below) is gorgeous - it's only sculptural though.
