Lights In the Attic.

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Filmmaker Vera van Wolferen got an early start as an artist, using cardboard refrigerator boxes to craft houses and spaceships, even a makeshift gas station and a post office for her dolls. Today, she makes lamps by hand out of the same material. There's a house with a window in the attic and a ladder to climb out ("to get closer to the stars and moon"), and a towering lighthouse. They're stunning and sophisticated, but, says Vera, "I'm still a girl making things out of cardboard."


Visit Vera's Etsy shop, here. (That's her, building a boat, above.)
