Polystyrene or Styrofoam is a material that people often recognise and one of its most popular applications is as a humble coffee cup. It’s, therefore, interesting to see such a familiar item used in a creative way.

creates unexpected sculptures out of everyday items – cups, pencils, buttons, tape and toothpicks.
The undulating landscape uses thousands of stacked polystyrene cups to create this amazing piece.

Now would anyone like to guess how many cups were used?

    Thanks for the comment David.

    They may have way too much time on their hands but at least they are passing it creatively and with a great deal of patience.
