Tuki's work amazes us a lot because his work reminds us of how well we can recycle "junks" and "stuff" to beautiful eco-friendly items.

Like Tuki, a lot of artists and creative thinkers and innovators can create beauty out of ugly and we await these manifestations.

You know, this kind of works just makes us love art all the more and yeah, we want to keep exploring its beauty.

Good job Tuki!
