Belgian Hare Recycled Cardboard Sculpture

Always experimenting new fibers, papers and pulps, I recently found out that many cardboard boxes are being made using sugarcane fibers, which is what remains after the sugarcane is crushed to form a juice for BioFuel. The remaining fibers and pulps being used to produce Ecofriendly Cardboard Boxes. I recycle these boxes, just as other found papers, and make my sculpting pulp. My sculptures are solid, and usualy take around six months to completely dry. This beautiful Belgian Hare (actually a rabbit, bred by British breeders to look like a wild hare) has 45cm height, and a found wood base. I kept the natural color of the cardboard.

I also love the fact that you’re recycling cardboard and paper for your fascinating animals.
