He makes the most beautiful artefacts out of discarded wood retrieved from dustbins. 'I never buy wood', says Hans Westra, a self-made sculptor. What he does is to bring out the image that he sees in the wood. To tell a story. Heads, masks, mythical birds. 'Making something beautiful out of rubbish', is his own way of describing it. 'To calm down.' Take a look at www.gafpa.nl.
