Gallery: Amazing Recycled Paper Designs Unveiled at the Origin Craft Fa...

 
The Origin Contemporary Craft Fair showcased the height of the modern craft movement at the London Design Festival this week, and Inhabitat was on the scene to bring you the best pieces from this year's show. Set in the middle of the famous Old Spittlefields Market, Origin is brimming with cool designs constructed from recycled materials and artisan products. The marketplace is particularly awash with fine art pieces of animal-inspired crafts, sculptures constructed from paper, and items exhibiting organic forms. Our favorite finds included sea-sourced artwork and intricately sewn birds made from scrap material - read on for the best of the bunch!

Ella Robinson sources materials washed up from the sea to create vibrant mixed artworks textiles. The Royal College of Art graduate’s work is bright, colorful, and equally inspired by cities and the coast.

Abigail Brown has created a magical batch of lifelike birds from fabric and traditional hand sewing techniques.

Using old maps as her canvas, Claire Brewster makes intricate pieces of art that take the form of birds and flowers. This simple idea is really effective, and is a great use of discarded paper.
