Paper Maché Vessels - Susan Dwyer

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
It's kind of crazy just how much I enjoy coming across unusual handmade paper bowls. This collection is delightfully elegant, and I would imagine, nearly as light as air.
Aqua Fade Bowl
Artist Susan Dwyer of Chicago uses thin strips of recycled and repurposed paper along with wheat paste to create the ethereal beauties.
Yellow Fade Bowl
She brings dimension to the vessels by applying vivid rubber to the interior or surface color via a dipping method.
Peach Fade Vessel
Their refined lines argue well against the thick, rough image that typically comes to mind upon hearing the term paper maché. In fact, this pair reminds me of gently cracked eggshells, albeit ones that have been turned inside out!
Aqua Color Burst Bowls
Susan also creates stylish ceramic pieces for the home, and shows her sculptural work at Read more about her process in this fine interview at Mint Style Studio.
With April 1st quickly approaching, contact me at ann.b.martin at if you are interested in placing an ad for your creative business on the site's sidebar. There are a couple of openings available at the moment, no fooling!
