I make paper plants and accessories using twigs and scrap paper such as food packages, shopping bags, wrapping paper, books, envelopes,etc that I find in the street. Originally paper was made from wood. After having been read or otherwise served their own purpose, they are thrown away. My idea is that from scrap paper new life once again begins when I transform them into flower blossoms. In this way, my work represents nature's amazing ability to regenerate. By turning recycling into an object of beauty I want raise awareness about conservation issues and make people think more about how important recycling is for our future.
I am still on the way to develop my work. To research materials and making test pieces are my main purpose to apply for AA2A programme. By experimenting and play with materials, I would get new ideas and it would leads to develop my work as well. Not only external factors but also understanding the inner surface of the materials and I will try to create and improve the quality of 100% hand-made, 100% original pieces to reach professional high standard.
I will exhibit my work at Made by Hand, Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales between 3rd and 5th December
