Recycled Paper Lamps by Maria Fiter
Today we want to introduce you to our latest addition to the Offcyclers’ family. Although she has been living and working in Spain for the most part of the last 10 years, she is originally from Poland. Maria Fiter is an independent designer that creates fascinating recycled paper lamps and lampshades. Her creations make use of a technique you are surely familiar with: paper maché. That’s right, do you remember that school project in which you had to mix old newspapers with glue, and then you would stick them around a balloon, to create a deformed head you would then paint? Well, that is paper maché. Now, the technique might sound simple, but Maria Fiter has turned it into an art form in which the end results are far from ordinary.
