Supporting our community of makers is a pillar of Mohawk’s foundation. For over eighty years, Mohawk has had the privilege of working with a community of savvy designers, ambitious printers, and innovative companies, and their ability to inspire has never faltered. We are excited to share details of a new partnership between So Delicious Dairy Free, Cuppow, and Repeat Press.
Lisa Nilsson wants to see what you’re made of. No amount of profile photos from Facebook or search results on Google will quell her fascination. This North Adams, Massachusetts-based artist is interested in the minutiae of your makeup. Nilsson patiently builds cross-sections of human anatomy using paper filigree, a method of coiling and rolling narrow strips of paper to create decorative work.
Paper is as much a part of sacred memories as family vacations and first dates. We formed our first letters across the light blue lines of primary school wide-ruled notebook paper. We cut into soft-yet-crisp construction paper for our first art projects. We carefully selected shade and paper texture for our wedding invitations.
For many designers, including Albany, New York-based artist Ken Ragsdale, the love of constructing with paper doesn’t fade with time.
