|A lovely Bakelite Ammeter repurposed as the home for a selection of cut paper factories. Each factory is mounted on a vintage coil which were housed in the original instrument. If you look closely youâ€™ll notice small figures hiding in the buildings too!
Little Paper Factory create individual pieces of art using paper, found materials and recycled objects. This form of paper art originated in Japan and is known as Kirigami. These individual pieces are then mounted in repurposed objects such as printer trays, wooden boxes or anything else â€˜vintageâ€™ that appeals. Even the paper is recycled and ranges from old sheet music or newsprint to maps.
Everything is individually designed and handmade resulting in truly unique work.
Inspiration comes from a wide range of sources but primarily from the love of vintage or collectable objects and the rich and varied architecture of Somerset. Repurposing things and giving them a new lease of life is incredibly satisfying and if those objects bring happiness to others then so much the better!
