Stuart Haygarth

British artist and designer Stuart Haygarth is best known for his work which revolves around discarded commonplace objects and detritus. His exquisite designs and installations have employed the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life – from man-made debris washed up on the seashore to thousands of salvaged prescription spectacles. Creating order and symmetry out of randomness and waste, his work is as much about the process of collecting and collating materials as the elevation of these materials to objects of value or beauty. By constructing narratives about time, loss, abandonment, and modernity, these human aspects attached to the chosen objects are an integral part and driving force within the work. Stuart will be our resident artist at Soneva Art and Glass, the Maldives’ only hot glass studio, from October 20 to November 10, 2022.
