Paper Project Venice – Architect

My love for paper was born with my love for drawing and painting, since I was a child.

Making origami animals, traveling to look for suitable papers either handmade or industrial. In 1992 I made my first trip to China and I bought some rice paper titles, one white and one yellowish with small golden pieces inside, of which I still keep a few pieces to save them for special jobs. I then started folding paper according to geometric patterns to make three-dimensional shapes. I love transforming old books and recycling them into new forms. One of these productions led me to make five glass sculptures with wax castings that were produced to be exhibited at the Murano Glass Museum and, then, also in other places, the last one in Milan, at the Fabbrica del Vapore in September 2022.

I like feeling the surfaces of the different cards. Finally I learned from a paper maker how to make handmade paper, with natural insertions of leaves and flowers. The world of cards is a beautiful world!

I also create folded papers, joining them to make lampshades with parchment paper.
