Bára Finnsdóttir 

Bára Finnsdóttir's "Shaping Paper" project is based on the "self-assembly process" and the mono-material strategy for forming and constructing paper materials. Inspired by the movement of plant elements such as deciduous leaves, the project investigates the layering and drying of fibre materials to create paper-based structures that mimic natural shapes. These structures can be used in innovative packaging, experimental food presentations, and as indoor organic elements.


Bára Finnsdóttir, born in Marburg in 1957, has lived in Berlin since 1995. After training as a glass painter at the Hadamar State Glass College and studying colour design at the IACC in Salzburg, she founded a studio for paper art in 1986. She collaborates with artists and authors and produces paper objects. Her works have been exhibited in numerous countries, including Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, France, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Slovenia and Bulgaria. Thornau organises international exhibitions and gives seminars and workshops in Europe. She has lectureships in France and Finland and has been a member of the IAPMA (International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists) since 2002.
