Exclusive Paper Design: Hannah Lobley

Posted on Jul 5, 2017 by

When Hannah Lobley accidentally left a book outside in the rain, the pages swelled with water and became unreadable. Yet the artist did not throw The Lord Of The Rings away. She was studying woodwork. Paper originates from wood. And Lobley realised that she could turn layered paper into a solid block that could be cut, crafted and turned just like timber. “The results were at once incredible and pleasing,” she reflects, “wood becomes paper… becomes wood.” Lobley took ten damaged copies of Warehouse Home Issue Five and turned the block of paper on a lathe. This beautiful bowl with a delicate wood grain effect was the result.
