Cecilia Levy

February 28, 2011

I’m inspired by Swedish artist Cecilia Levy’s beautiful, bookish work. Old papers and book pages, give the bowls and vessels a feeling of history. Are they old pages from books? Tea stained paper? There are little bits of text which appear to give the viewer a hint. Vessels which hold history.

Old, new, stained, crumpled, torn… Paper - especially old book pages - I love the feel, the smell, the texture. I like to re-use materials in a different context, fond of recycling, using what I have at hand. I create art objects using paper pulp or papier maché technique. I’m also a graphic designer and bookbinder, living and working in Sigtuna, Sweden. Contact me for workshops, commission work or just leave a small comment - much appreciated!
