Click! That’s the sound you usually associate with safety, but now it’s the sound of trendy new fashion accessories and furniture created meticulously and artistically with seat belts and buckles.

Clay Bush’s fascination with fiber arts began with the Appalachian Center for Craft and ultimately led to the manipulation of all types of fabrics. Most notably, in 2012 Bush created Salvage: Upholstery and Design and turned his talents toward creating stylish handbags and upholstering all forms of residential and commercial furniture using recycled seat belts from local Nashville junk yards. Bush has shown work nationally, including at the University School of Nashville’s Artclectic.

Current works can be seen at the artisan co-op Erabellum,
1800 8th Avenue South, 615-601-1568.
