RECYCLED CHOPSTICKS SOAP DISH
Soap Lo Mein
After living in China for several years and witnessing, on a large scale, the wasteful habit of disposable chopsticks, artist Bryan Parks decided he had to do something about it. So, he set to work designing functional, sculptural folding pieces handmade from recycled, sanitized bamboo chopsticks.
Symmetrical and simple, this folding soap dish will keep soap dry and off the counter.
Before becoming soap dishes, the chopsticks are boiled in black tea to give them a medium brown color.
Handmade in the Yunnan Province of southwest China.

Artist Bryan Parks, an American who lived in China for several years, made a steady habit of eating with chopsticks while there. One day during lunch, which was of course being eaten with single-use chopsticks, Bryan rather nonchalantly asked his lunch partner how many chopsticks did he imagine were used per year considering China's population size. This simple question would prove to be the catalyst for an innovative coupling of art and conservationism. See all creations.
