Cardboard Sculptures

Thursday, November 17, 2011


Today i chanced upon Domingos Tótora and his selection of cardboard as the main material for his work that falls somewhere between art and design. The surrounding natural landscape and his appetite for nature function as the sources of inspiration for his work. Beginning with recycled cardboard he crafts functional beauty in the form of objects and sculptures, giving an artistic characteristic to everyday things.






"In a certified sustainable process, recycled cardboard is broken up into small pieces and turned into a pulp that serves as the base material for furniture, objects and sculptural pieces that are molded by hand, dried in the sun and finished to perfection. In this beautiful and labor intensive process, the cardboard which originated as wood, essentially is brought back full cycle by taking on a wood-like quality again. We believe sustainability happens through actions and not words.The beauty of Domingo Tótora's work not only manifests itself in the final product that one might acquire, but in the process itself. From the designer's philosophy and respect of the environment, the location of the studio and the way the work is produced, all the way to the final product."
