“Ptolemy Elrington sees animals in everyday objects – usually unwanted objects that have been discarded and left as rubbish.
The self-styled hubcap artist first became fascinated with scrap when he found an abundance of plastic car waste near his home in Bradford.  Later a trip to India convinced him that a lot could be made with the material that society threw away.
Now a full time artist based in Brighton, he has developed his own method for sculpting plastic scrap – with a special interest in fish.”
