When I first started making sculpture I decided to use cardboard as my medium of choice. I wanted a medium that could be used to sculpt beyond traditional materials and without the need of an arts studio. The end result was the fine crafting of an inexpensive, common place and recyclable material.
I manipulate cardboard into taking a form which is vastly beyond its original function as a container to transport food and commercial goods.
Love this piece of furniture created entirely from cardboard waste by local artist James Lake, commissioned by IKEA , Exeter. https://t.co/3HguzOsHhX. @SailsCanvas #sustainable-living #devon #reducewaste #reduceplastic #recycle #upcyledfurniture #cardboardart pic.twitter.com/Gu8EZCQPYG— Sails and Canvas (@SailsCanvas) May 18, 2018
