From the top: A guillemot woven from hundreds of washed up cable ties (Liz Franklin), lids, caps and bottle tops picked up by one person fro one hour at a local beach (Claire Wallerstein), thousands of shotgun wads, most probably from guillemot hunting on the Canadian east coast (Claire Wallerstein), two ‘trash heads’  (I do not know who made these, apologies).
