Calyx of Flower Paper Mache Lamps
This series of lamps refers to the birth of a fresh and new structure. The form of this lamp resembles a flower in different stages of development. The light comes through the porous surface of the cup and creates soft shadows around the room, complementing the decor of the interior and completely transforming its atmosphere. To create this series of lamps I was inspired by the sketchbook – Herbarium of a Polish artist and writer Stanisław Wyspiański. Flowers were also a great source of inspiration for him to create his fantastic frescos and drawings.
I make pulp from the newspapers, which flood us with information every day. The content of daily news is slowly digested, and at the end of the day land forgotten in the waste basket. This conglomeration of unwanted, chewed up information has become a base to create something new and lasting.
Lamp is in 100 % recycled and eco-friendly, made from paper waste and cellulosic, water based glue.
Each paper pulp lamp is different and unique.
Handmade in Spain.
