London’s Landmarks Are Recreated Using Recycled Tobacco Pipes


ST. Pauls in workFrom trash to treasure, London’s famous landmarks have been cleverly recreated by artist Amelia Parker, who uses centuries old clay tobacco pipes, that once littered the capital’s streets.

Displayed as a collection of blank greetings cards, Amelia’s artwork features Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Palace of Westminster, The London Eye, Eros and Nelson’s Column.

Amelia has been gathering the pipes for years for her company Recycled London, scouring the Thames’ foreshore, to use them as material for her jewellery, sculptures and artwork, where London’s history once again comes to life.
