Wood becomes paper becomes wood
After accidentally leaving a book out in the rain, in 2002 Hannah Lobley developed the internationally exhibited and award winning Paperwork, a unique recycling technique using the printed pages of unwanted books and paper. The pages are layered and transformed back into a solid wood like material. Traditional wood working methods are then used to create interior objects from that material. The surface patternation of the paper when the objects are worked echoes wood grain.
