Design Tip: Paper Art from Venice

Paper art by Carta Venezia/holders

Who in the narrow streets Venice in the District of Santa Croce, the narrow Cala Longa happens, pauses at the latest before the house number 2125. In the expenses of the tiny Lädchens Carta Venezia/holders, cream-colored handmade paper to poetic still lifes is arranged: in gold-plated cups, books with rough cut, with slight reliefs decorated bookmarks and elaborate pieces of jewelry. The mild light of delicate painted lampshades illuminated this gorgeous paper theatre.

Carta Venezia/holders is Fernando Masones Empire. Carta is paper in Italian. But this is no ordinary paper. The leaves appear to prefer to write hot love vows suitable for as schnödes shred for notes. You want to touch it, gently move your finger. Fernando knows the magical effect of his papers and has hung a collection of snow-white “respect gloves” so prominently for the visitors, reported by biotionary.

1995 Fernando conducted a workshop for handmade paper at the international school of graphics in Venice. There, he met Zelda Rocchi. The two formed a creative community, who expressed their peculiarities and preferences in their paper works of art many years. That Fernando is a trained ceramist, looking at his work. Elaborate reliefs are the leaves. Traditional paper is much too shallow. This more like a delicious PITA on its surface elegant birds of paradise and slightly veiled women abound. Zelda de-inked tendrils of Golden and silver ornaments on lamps and books with light hand and invented tirelessly new pieces of jewellery. Although now everyone goes his own way, Zelda’s art has left many traces in Fernando’s small shop. Shoes are her favorite subject. Bronze foliage shines on the cap of the ballet slippers. How gracefully they look. Necklaces and Ohringen rustle balls and small sculptures made from paper. The great books are held together with solid cotton thread. To open it, stands silent crashing out in the room.

The workshop of Fernando is located in the former monastery of Saints Cosma and Damiano on Giudecca island. The secret place from the 15th century is today behind his red brick walls studios and workshops for artists. From time to time, Fernando here organized his workshops.

The paper is drawn with large green garden views. Pure cotton. As in ancient times: soak, fix, drain and squeeze. The sheets on the ceiling attach clothespins to the dry. The reliefs run together with the submission by a hand-press. The raising motives arise leaf by leaf carefully and then landing for a long while in a massive Vice. Papermaking is a sensual work, one that requires a lot of patience and time.

Fernando’s specialty are variations on classical motives: men with goat heads and long tails. “We make the Venetian, the famous lion and the birds that grace almost every Palazzo of Venice, due to tourists”, he says. Still prefer he stumbled about in search it, to become a furniture with his papers.

Who can be so drive through the old streets of Venice and randomly looking through the window of the Carta Venezia/holders in the store, spotted inside with a bit of luck Fernando as he grow is milk-white flowers with light hand on a book cover.
