A variety of mediums are used to transform old newspapers and waste paper into decorative functional items, sculptures, paper art jewellery, and small gifts. Each piece is unique and inspired by Buddhist philosophy and the world around us.
Paper is torn up, soaked, sieved, mashed and mixed with a variety of ingredients to transform it into paper mache, paper pulp, or paper clay depending on what is to be created. The armatures used can be existing forms found in the kitchen, or made individually with all manner of materials. Sometimes just crumpled up newspaper and masking tape will suffice.
The whole process is labour intensive and when the form is eventually covered, with layers of the prepared paper and has dried out completely the final sanding, painting and varnishing processes complete the piece.
The papers beads and pendants of the art jewellery pieces are individually formed and painted. Silver or gold plated findings are used unless otherwise specified
