We, at Mimi Berlin, have been away from our blog for over a year. So we do feel the need to update you, our readers, on what we’ve been up to all this time. Well, amongst other things, and in a nutshell; we created lamps. Below some quick snapshots.
The lamps made by Mimi Berlin
All these lamps are constructed mainly with recycled plastic. Or as we like to say; discarded plastic all sorts; early plastics, newly produced plastic….from Tupperware to…..well, everything but the kitchen sink.
Wait, hold on, we created more in our year of absence
These dolls and faces are a small sidestep from Mimi Berlin’s ‘Important Bagatelles’ or ‘Toys for Girls’ project. A sidestep in the sense of that these aren’t abstract objects. Also they are visibly assembled and each product we used is still identifiable.
New! Fish figurines by Mimi Berlin. Toys for Girls from the Bagatelle series. Below we present: “Used Fish” and ‘Fish Lamp 3’! These fish figurines, well actually they are whales, are based on our classic Fish Lamp in black. The ‘Used fish’ and the ‘Fish lamp 3’ are assembled with hard-plastic (second hand found, early plastics, tupperware, rubber and a led-light.) The tails are made of pressed glass. Both figurines are unique and signed pieces.
‘Happy Birtday to You Dear Dearest’ is a statuette by Mimi Berlin from the ‘Bagatelle‘ series. The ‘Cake Bagatelle’ is an everlasting cake with one, fake, candle, It’s pink and made from hard-plastic. (ø 7,5 x 17 cm, Vintagedeluxe Tupperware/led-light).
