John Makowski, Recycle Sculpture

     Former Californian John Makowski is a transformational artist. Art-lovers who visit his home studio in Fearrington village the first two weekends in December at the 25th Chatham studio Tour will experience his transformation of everyday objects and pieces of discards into magical creatures. “My pallet is stuff that I find at the PTA thrift shop, garage sales, antique shops and goodies that folks just drop off,” Makowski quips. “I don’t see right off what – or who – the elements will transform themselves into, but they always become works with whimsy and wonder.” I know that they are right when people laugh at them.” Often the sculptures have moving parts that invite participation.
