"Cartoneria technique, a Mexican artisan craft inherited from Spain and was originally used to make dolls for girls who could not afford porcelain. The craft was an adaptation to the traditional Papier-Mache, in that it uses a thick craft paper.
This peacock is an abstraction part of a series of adaptations of objects using Cartoneria and upcycled materials found at our studio.” MRJ
