All daily things have a poetic quality. Thats why I've chosen to use besides the types of paper I always like to work with (like pastel paper and kozo), to use types wich have a function in our daily live.
By choosing a simple method of cutting and glueing there's room left for more, suchs as a composition. The composition is based on a stream: out of the wooden floor it goes up through the paper that has been made of wood pulp and fibers of plants. A tribute to the trees, with its beautiful bark, who connects earth with heaven by enabling the lifeblood to rise.
