Designers Azusa Murkakmi and Alexander Groves of Swine Studio have unveiled their latest collection of artistic sea garbage-made sculptures.

This latest eco-friendly art collection titled Gyrecraft used "1000 nautical miles of sea trash." The collection is comprised of numerous lavish-looking art pieces. The incredible duo has completely transformed pieces of garbage into mesmerizing oceanic decor.

The trash was collected during an excursion from the Azores to the Canaries. The duo hit five major ocean gyres on this adventure. Through the use of the duo's self-made Solar Extruder, each piece of sea garbage was melted down and printed into layers of plastic sheets. This process ensures that each piece of plastic is used and that every sheet creates a one-of-a-kind pattern that is impossible to replicate.
