Got Old Books ? They can get new lives as home utilities .

Any Engineer would tell you , the most efficient ways of recycling paper are either leave it degrade or to incinerated it.  But now Artists and designers are  finding innovative ways to re-purpose old paper and books that may no longer be relevant. So far, we’ve seen books transformed into Japanese lanterns, sculptures and even mini-houses cut entirely from vintage books you can now  add tableware to that list.

After experimenting with three-dimensional paper objects started in 2009, this  formerly Swedish graphic designer and bookbinder Cecilia Levy  now works full time as an dependant art creator; re-purposing old paper materials into intricate and stunting art works.

ausquerry3She is hard to come by as she is always on the road planning and participating  in solo and group exhibitions in Sweden and abroad; working with public art assignments and holding workshops.

Cecilia Levy creates exquisite paper plates, bowls and natural forms using small pieces of paper taken from comic books and vintage volumes. Her art work are of an exquisite variant as they range from coloured bowls to flower bulbs to tea cups.

 


ausquerry4Levy focus on the inherent delicacy of paper, and leaves the original stains and discolourations of the sheets on her works as a testament to her starting material history.  Her objects are created using papier-mâché techniques, and are not varnished afterwards, to retain the emphasis on the paper itself.

Ephemeral and exquisitely made, Levy’s paper art gently evokes a sense of magic and wonder that only handmade objects can inspire, while giving new meaning to books that may otherwise have gone to waste. For more information, visit her website.

Super realist Paper Folding (Origami that will blow your mind away )

HOANG TIEN QUYET was born in Vinh Phuc, Vietnam , and has been folding paper since she was a small kid. Citing his website:
At the time I was amazed at how a flat sheet of paper could transform into beautiful 3D animals and objects, and it was also a joy of a kid who could make his own toys.

He went on to join the  Vietnam Origami Group forum where, with help of friends who shared similar same passion for origami, was inspired to create her own models. Her style is  distinguish and somewhat unique , and  displays exquisite  curves and seamed out edges in most of his models.                He has won many awards; namely Special guest of Ultimate origami convention 2015, in Lyon, FRANCE . Special guest of OrigamiUSA convention 2015, in New York, down NY, USA and co-authored a few books on the art of paper folding (“50 hours Origami +”, and “VOG2 – origami.vn”, both published by Nicolas Terry).
