Kirsty Loves Cardboard

Melbourne-based artist and architect Kirsty Fletcher loves cardboard, and I love what Kirsty does with it!

Especially since her sculptures and collages are often made from reclaimed packaging and ephemera such as beer cartons, boxes, met-cards and salvaged objects.


And especially since her work frequently features kinetic moving parts

I think my favourite piece is Heading Home (for Mum's birthday), a small-scale cardboard sculpture depicting one of her most treasured experiences. You can read about it here.

 I hope you'll enjoy exploring her blog as much as I did, and give Kirsty a shout if you're interested in anything, some of her work is for sale.
