A dusting of stars upon dim shores

Post stuff I like and for future reference. I don't follow many Tumblr's since it makes me anxious having to look at so many posts but you are welcome to follow me. :)









PAPERSE (Paper Vase) by Cauca.
“Paperse is a flower vase made from paper. By using it, you can keep lively flowers on desk or wall easily. You can make it easily by folding, because it is made from thick paper. When you use it together with vinyl tube in which water can be contained, you can preserve flower for a long time. When you write a brief memo or letter on the front surface of vase and present it for your precious person together with flower, it will be more valuable. Produce your space more beautifully with a piece of flower and “Paperse” flower vase.”

The Golden Set / 15 Handmade Paper Envelopes / 2011 by Furze Chan.
“The definition of an envelope was redefined as: 
An enclosed paper pocket with one or more openings.
Under this definition, experiments were carried out to explore the possibility of envelope forms, disregarding their functional usage. 
Hand-torn golden paper pieces were applied onto geometrically shaped white envelopes.
The envelope paper is vintage typing paper.”

Folded by Raw-Edges for Mutina.
“The idea is to reproduce the effect of folded paper on ceramics, an ancient material with so many characters and features, such as the ability to be cast into such unexpected forms and shapes thus it could be elusive and even deceiving. A challenge for Raw-Edges who have already experimented with this very fragile, delicate and thin material. As a visual reference, they were inspired by the old repetitive tile patterns that were very common (and still are) in old apartments in TelAviv from the 50’ and 60’, and which play with color alternation. Raw Edges, original from Israel, have attempted to achieve the repetitiveness and its intrinsic charm through folded lines only.”
