shelley rickey: paper crete furniture and objects

Shelley Rickey created furniture from materials she had at hand--pulp paper. She started collecting egg & fruit cartons at her local market in Rotterdam as well as sawdust from the lumbermill. She cooked the paper down to mush, drained it, mixed it with sawdust, wallpaper paste and wood glue for the perfect...Pulp. For a more artistic look, she sometimes adds rusty metal bits & pieces, like springs from old chairs or big chunky bolts.
