Sculpted Paper Basket

This sculpted basket, both a decorative and a functional art piece in intense grey and white, is made solely of recycled paper and has a sculpted exterior look with specks of metallic silver light. Plaster strengthens the structure to create the opportunity for functional use while a wavy paper texture on the exterior creates the artistic illusion of a soft leather or canvas bag.

Water inspires me often. Nowhere is that more apparent than in my basket where the exterior resembles a water-like texture. With this sculpture, I wanted to stretch the possibilities of what I could do with paper.

The sturdy, water-resistant basket can be placed on a shelf or on the floor and customers have been known to use it for storage, such as towels or magazines.
