Bottle-top Sculpture by Andrew Dombuleni
1 December 2012
Andrew Dombuleni is one of the most colourful characters of our craft market. His congenial nature and ready smile are always turned on to welcome visitors. Working with recycled material, mostly metal, Andrew uses waste to realise the works of art that fill his mind.
His ability to give life to inert materials makes him a sculptor of note and his work has spread worldwide. Andrew was one of 10 artists commissioned in 2007, to contribute to the "wire+plus [this is my Cape Town]" project at the V&A Waterfront. This required Andrew to work on his creation in public at the Waterfront. His work, entitled "Argus Fever", is a life sized cyclist on a bicycle that took him 6 weeks to complete.
In his many years with the Country Craft Market, Andrew has migrated through a variety of materials from Papermaché and wire, through scrap metal and cans, to beaded wire. Now, Andrew is on a new mission to recycle crown bottle-tops to capture 3D images of African with a true African feel. At the Country Craft Market of Saturday, 1 December, Andrew will be demonstrating his new techniques and visitors to the market should not miss the opportunity to see him busy on his creations, and to view his fine collection of work that turns recycled metals into collectable African sculptures.
