Similar to the paper maché process, she uses plaster of paris to cast a shape and covers the bowls with a range of materials, including chiyogami papers, magazine and newspaper clippings, tissue and wrapping papers and other finds. ZS credits her 15 plus years working with young children as her inspiration to continue crafting.

For Carolyn Laurie, sewing had always been a great interest. However, with two daughters born close together, her 'me' time almost completely disappeared. Now that her daughters are older, Carolyn has found more of that 'me' time, and has returned to her craft.

After realizing there was a growing market for fashionable and useful accessories made from reclaimed materials, Carolyn began to sell her creations. Over the last 3 years, she's made dozens of different bags from recycled materials and has rescued over 1200 juice pouches from the landfill. She collects spent juice bags from local schools and has many other donors among her friends and family. She is available for custom projects.
