Cardboard Art

This honeycomb looking piece of art is actually cardboard packing corners which have been glued to a flattened box.

This is what Nicole saw when she walked in to the apartment. Looking at Tim disapprovingly, he said, “Can you believe someone wanted to throw these away?” her answer, “Yes.” (But, of course, as with most things, she loves the cardboard creation).

This next piece is a Frank Gehry inspired chair. Tim took a bunch of flat pieces of cardboard and cut out the shape of a chair (over and over). Using Elmer's glue, he made this little piece of wonder by gluing all the cutouts side by side.

It is very sturdy and can support almost 300 pounds (we haven’t tried much more than that…)
