Jeremy May designs wearable pieces from the layered pages of vintage books.

 

“Paper is many things: a carrier of text, illustration, history and emotion.

Jeremy May has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly paper jewellery is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space.

Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the  wearer. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a tantalising glimpse of the book within.”

Floating City is one sculpture built two times.

The sculpture was first shown at an art gallery in Copenhagen in the spring of 2014 and then a couple of months later at an art’s festival. When that event came to an end, the sculpture was nowhere to be found. It is still unclear what actually happened; if it was stolen or simply thrown away. At that point Floating City was chosen by a jury to be exhibited at Liljevalchs Vårsalong in Stockholm and was therefore built once more. They are not visually identical in detail but it’s nevertheless piece of art – it was just recycled and reborn.

” I use almost exclusively used cardboard. I collect it from the recycling center in my apartment building, from stores and sometimes I find it on the street. I really appreciate the sustainable, earth friendly aspect of reusing a recyclable material. Cardboard also has a lot of expressions. It varies in thickness, hue, color, texture. A bunch of cardboard means so many possibilities to me, when it to others may just be rubbish.”
