Graham Lester - Bowls made from upcycled materials & Paper Art

Graham says:

"I have worked with paper as a media for some time producing sculptures for displays and other promotions.
I now focus on using paper carefully constructed to create a three dimensional effect, as a decorative art form to express ideas, both free standing and behind glass for wall hanging.
Each piece is individually assembled, using paper that is cut, bent, folded, curled, and glued in position.

I also sculpt in wood and turn bowls and pots using reclaimed materials, e.g. acrylics, corian, paper and plywood, laminated together and turned on the lathe into decorative items."

We say:

Graham's playful sense of humour is beautifully rendered in his paper art - and the skill used to make his creations really has to be seein in person.

And the concept of laminating waste art materials and then lathe-turning these in to decorative pieces is brilliant.
