ReMix: Mixed Media, Studio 130
ReMix studio is all about recycled art, and owners David Rich and Lisa Hopper have been turning trash into treasure for over 15 years. They believe that giving everyday objects new life as one-of-a-kind artworks is a kind of alchemy that turns recyclables into artistic gold. Old bottles become wind chimes, picture frames are constructed from old magazines, and key chains are crafted from recycled metal. You’ll also find pour spout bottles, oil lamps, incense burners, and kaleidoscopes. Some of their most impressive pieces are wall-hanging works in the shapes of states, created from license plates from their respective states. ReMix takes commissions, so if you can’t find your home state, just bring in your own tags, and they’ll recreate your homeland.

“reMix is a studio where you will find mixed medium items using 75 percent recycled and repurposed items just right for your budget. reMix is a collaboration between Lisa Hopper and David Rich and each item we create is unique and deliberately designed to be functional. We take ordinary items like recycled bottles to make pour spout bottles and oil lights, and use old magazines to create frames and mirrors to spice up any living space. reMix also uses hand-made beads to create fan pulls and almost always have a basket of beads at the studio for you to design your own. If you come in and don’t see something that catches your eye, but like the techniques; we do offer custom-made, one-of-a-kind commission pieces. Just give us a little information about the theme or colors and we will be happy to do our best to suit your needs.
We hope to see you soon at reMix, Studio 130.”
