About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Artistic Expression to Solid Waste


"Silver Nut Tree, a venture that took birth from the love and passion for art and craft and concern for the environmental issues of this planet that we call home, is into creating one-of-its-kind unique handcrafted products. It started with a humble PET Plastic Bottle which showed the promise of becoming a treasure that no owner would want to throw away ending in our planets already bulging landfills and polluted oceans. The designers themselves realized that PET Plastic is just one among the potential hazards and went on to find ways to UP- CYCLE punctured rubber tubes, bottle caps, washers, nuts, CD’s and even glass bottles. At Silver Nut Tree the experiments go on, on a daily basis turning ‘trash’ into viable beautiful products aptly named The Phoenix range. In Greek mythology, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor"
