Alchemist’s Furniture 2017, newspaper, wood glue, wood

The Alchemist’s Furniture is series of furniture which explores the transformation of a material into another element through the application and the technique. Paper is sculpted into branch like structures which has the aesthetics of a marbled stone, while having the tactility of both rough stone and soft paper. Just like an alchemist would, a lifeless material from old newspapers have been given a new life as a furniture of another element.
