Piece included in Beauty and Wonder exhibition (curator Luis Acosta)
Materials pressing of paperboards, cardboards and color papers
Cartonpia is a workshop for the design and creation of unique pieces of jewelry, based on recycling, rescuing disused paper and cardboard, innovating due to the particularity of the material, the design and the imprint of the craft process, the basic idea being obtaining of an object-sculpture-jewel, a daily and close contact with design, recycling and crafts, in pieces whose use is both daily and on special occasions.
I work with various materials made from papers that will be discarded, thus generating a new material, of which the main and most attractive is the multilaminate of cardboard and cardboard, which I order in the first place in the sequence I want them to be seen later, by means of a process of humidity and pressure, the papers are united and compact, after several weeks of drying the design process of each piece begins, for which I am inspired by organic shapes or geometric treatments. The following work is similar to that of the wood, cutting, carving, sanding, polishing, etc., but obtaining extremely colorful pieces and an astonishingly light weight, which allows me total freedom in terms of color, design and size.
