Design Feature : Jenny Pinto's Sustainable Lamps

Jenny derives her inspiration from earth itself. She says "Earth is balanced, generous, non judgmental and provides for everyone. She has solutions to absolutely every thing. As a species, we humans have lost touch with her. Connecting to the earth is understanding the natural process of life, knowing your place within it and trying to harmonize with earth and with each other. Sounds deep but in fact it is simplicity itself. Sustainability is a life-long journey, and I am still making it." Anybody is welcome to her studio to learn the dying art of paper making by hand. Here's featuring some of her work.
