We created this blog with an aim to share our passion for creative papers, great design, and printing. For offering a platform, and shining a light for projects such as The Papermaker. A short documentary about one of the last handcrafting papermakers in Europe and his great love for paper – one we certainly share. Gangolf Ulbricht’s passion and unwavering dedication is heard in his words, and seen in his talent.
Ulbricht makes unique tree-free papers by hand. For international artists, conservators, photographers, printers and much more. He learned his unique craft in Germany, Japan, France, and England. In this short film by German film production company Kings&Kongs , we see him producing his fine paper in his basement studio in the Arthouse Bethanien in Berlin-Kreuzberg. He talks about his love and dedication for this craft – and it’s future. Gangolf has worked for a number of known artists like Jenny Holzer, Louise Bourgeois, Guenther Uecker, Jonathan Meese, Damien Hirst, Christiane Baumgartner, Matthias Weischer and much more.
