" Each piece is made from recycled paper pulp. Junk mail, old bank statements, scrap paper, and newspaper are torn apart and stewed together for several days to create a pulp. The pulp is pressed in our hands or through a screen, forming lumps that are then carefully transformed into Lump Nubbins with paint and painted paper, and set on a plaster or concrete base. Each is unique and has a name, which is written on the bottom of the sculpture base."
