Gugger Petter

I am in awe of Gugger Petter's work and vision. Here is the description of her work:
Newsprint is normally known as a fragile material, but through my manipulation of the paper, which is rolled tightly into tubes and later sealed by varnish, it is transformed into a very strong and solid material. Yet I tend to "see" it as being fluid, since I construct each piece in the same free manner, much as a painter might use his brush.
Via Hill Country House.

Yes, look closely, this beautiful image is made from newsprint!
