Furniture Made From Recycled Sea Mines
…or perhaps, this rolling one.
Put a couple of of cold beers on this manly coffee table.
After warming yourselves by the fire, why not take your steam punk baby out for a tough little stroll in his steam punk baby carriage.
All these inventive ways to reclaim sea mines were on display at the Retretti Art Centre in Finland.
Karmin, the Estonian artist who reinvented these sea mines as furniture lives in an area with a wealth of steam punk material. In the ’90s, the departing Soviet army burned the explosives out of mines that had been stored for a century, leaving a multitude of cases scattered around.
These were the material the artist worked with. Lots of empty shells were taken to the mainland as scrap-iron during the cleaning of the island. There is still an existing field of mines in Mädasadam as a tourist sight.
