Meet the maker

Welcome to BLURECO!

All of my projects are handmade from 100% recycled paper. Most of them are created newspapers, but my studio is full of different types of paper - outdated catalogues and phone books, magazines, leaflets, egg boxes, carrier trays, cartoon boxes, books and many more. I'm absolutely fascinated with paper, with its colours, quality, thickness, the way it folds, acts in the water. By working and experimenting with paper I want to prove that what we generally call rubbish can be interesting and valuable material to work with.

People often get confused when they see my works for the first time. Some don't believe that it's paper and some think that there must be a wire or some kind of staging inside that holds everything together and makes it so strong.
But there isn't. It's just paper.

Apart from fascination with paper I also believe that my work is friendly for the environment. The facts about global paper consumption are terrifying therefore I work only with waste paper and I’m using techniques that help me minimise waste. Scraps from different projects are used for making paper pulp, paper pulp is turned into new object, and then scraps of paper pulp can be used again to make new pulp. This process produces nearly 0% waste.
