Lampes papier
Have you seen these amazing lamps?! A designer that has her stuff on Etsy, Allison Patrick of the 3R’s Blog (Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate – 30 projects in 30 weeks) has created some pretty cool pendant shades that are pretty representative of the beautiful shape of the artichoke. But – the shade is made of recycled pages from books and magazines! Allison’s lamps are very cool, they remind me of the decoupage projects my mom would do with us as a kid. Just recently she got featured on, and that has pushed her work sky high! Allison’s got a pretty awesome story with her luminaire design business (which is called Zipper 8 Design, by the way) – she graduated with her Masters, and like many people, she found herself with lots of time and no job. Allison's stuff on Etsy Allison, thinks your works are awesome. Thanks Inhabitat for the original article! Like this: Like Loading...

Although on the surface metal sheets and animation cells don't appear to have much in common, I find that my approach to repoussé turns out to be very similar to what I used for animation: learn as much as possible about the technical aspects of the medium, then experiment like hell. You have to understand that metal needs to move in a particular way, and how certain chemicals will react to the metal. Sometimes you have to sacrifice pieces to discover new techniques. Having been a special effects animator for over 20 years has made me a different kind of metal smith.
