A Round of Song

Sisters Carly and Casey Torgerson were concerned by the needless waste they witnessed in the schools and businesses around them, but instead of just throwing up their hands, they fired up their creativity and began to transform the problem into unique works of art.

This piece, entitled "Sing for Tomorrow", is hand-signed and features a stylized, art deco face that exhales a joyous swirl of color and music. The hand-painted, mixed media work is created using reclaimed materials gathered from the artists' community, including unwanted sheet music from a local middle school, and a circular base donated by a stereo manufacturer, which had previously discarded these pieces of wood. The artwork comes ready to hang, with a reclaimed soda can pull tab as the mounting hardware. Handmade in Tallahassee, FL, and Minneapolis, MN.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

The Torgerson sisters started out on separate paths: Carly studied education and taught art in public schools, and Casey was a passionate environmentalist serving in AmeriCorps. But when Carly hit upon the idea of using reclaimed materials to create unique works of art, Casey was eager to join in the creative endeavor. Together they formed SoulShine Studio. They contacted local businesses for donations of scrap wood, paper and more, and discovered those companies were only too happy to have a way to reduce their waste and environmental impact. The unique, upcycled nature of those materials is displayed proudly in the design of each one of the sisters' colorful creations.

    Comments about SING FOR TOMORROW - CARLY & CASEY TORGERSON:

    I had to find something wood for our 5th wedding anniversary. It's made of recycled or 2nd hand items that would have gone to the landfill. My wife is a professional singer and an environmentalist, so she loved it. Its very unique.

      Comments about SING FOR TOMORROW - CARLY & CASEY TORGERSON:

      My 15-year old daughter loves music. When I asked her if there was anything special she hoped to receive for Christmas this year she said "No. Just cool stuff." Very helpful. I saw this and hoped it would fit the bill. Now, the important reviewer hasn't recieved this yet, but as the giver of this gift I'm very pleased with the quality and the artwork. The fact that's it's all on recycled material will also make her happy. Great website to find unique gifts.

        I got this piece as a gift for my mom who is a professinal singer. She loved it! The colors are beautiful and the design unique. I liked that the music used is recycled sheet music. It is a good size and will look great in any room of her house.
