Recycled Artist: Steve Jensen
Okay, Steve Jensen is not usually on the list of artists in Seattle who work with recycled materials — he prefers naturally felled wood — but he was on the jury with Ruby for the Seattle RE Store’s Recycled Art Show 2011 (more about that soon), and he did show us some work that he made from repurposed packing crates:

We went to visit Steve in his Capitol Hill (Seattle) studio earlier this month:

Unfortunately, Ruby’s camera battery needed to be recharged, so she did not get as many pictures as she would have liked. Make sure you check out Steve Jensen’s website and read his artist statement; better yet, visit his studio or go see his art work in person (he is the artist that did the contemporary NW Stonehenge for the roundabout on Boulevard Road in Olympia, amongst other public art installations).
