Papier Mache Bowls

These papier mache bowls were made today using a lovely moody blue egg carton. Just one egg carton, mind you, resulted in six bowls. Since the blue is an ongoing theme these days I decided to take time out to pulp and pour and create something a little different, humble, earthy but nevertheless exotic.

If you are at all excited by this well then you can try it yourself! I have written some instructions on the PROJECTS page (top right)

Have fun!

Yuniko Studio is featured today on The Design Files !





If you are reading this post after following the link from TDF then you will know about The Design Files and I need not say more! If not, then I can only say it's a great site and an honour to have been selected.

Thank you The Design Files!

Angelita Bonetti photographing  Yuniko Studio in her studio



















Not so long ago it was suggested I had my work photographed by a professional photographer - a new website being developed for Nells in Mosman Park. Now that Yuniko Studio is hanging out in this rather cutting edge venue it was high time I thought, to start taking things a little more seriously. The age-old dilemma for the modern-day artisan (a tautology perhaps but one can be creative with language in order to make a point) is how much can one person do beyond the complex and time-consuming processes of thinking, designing and making? It was a very interesting experience watching Angelita work quietly and with great focus, taking her time to set up what seemed like the simplest of shots - stripped of any distraction (such was the brief by the stylist) and hard up against a raw background (which I love)of concrete floor, an old chair, or a weathered wood door.
