Book It!Most people think of books as an antiquated form of providing information. It almost feels like books have lost their purpose and Ray Bradbury predicted the future… until Felix Carmelo came along.
Right on the heels of Earth Day, we figured featuring an artist that used recycled materials was a no-brainer. Aren’t we cheeky? Most people think of books as an antiquated form of providing information, or in some cases stacks of books are repurposed into impromptu nightstands [read how here]. It almost feels like books have lost their purpose and Ray Bradbury predicted the future… until Felix Carmelo came along.
In the artist's studio, his limited edition sculptures line his bookshelf.
Breathing new life into worn out, overly read pages; Felix brings to us The Never Ending Story. His collection of three-dimensional paper sculptures tastefully immortalizes an item in our lives that was once relevant. We bet your Kindle can’t do that.
Felix works by hand to transform abandoned books into unique 3D sculptures.
Felix believes in the art of transformation and how objects have more than one purpose. He gracefully showcases this with each one of a kind hand crafted sculpture. Each piece is like a snowflake; there are no two of a kind.
Felix works by hand with a variety of tools.
Take a peek at one of our new favorite obsessions and see why it’s a must have item to feature in your home.
