Five years ago, Bernie Kaminski’s daughter brought home a papier-mache seahorse she made at school. ‘I thought it looked cool,’ he says. They made a few more simple things together and soon it turned into a hobby.
Since then, he has created more than 100 everyday objects using cardboard, newspaper, masking tape and acrylic paints, including bagels, tennis rackets and ketchup bottles. ‘I have a long list of pieces I’d like to make but I have to figure out where they’d go,’ he says. ‘They are taking up a lot of space in our apartment.’
