“The thing about Aline’s furniture is that it is sturdy and durable. It’s strong enough to support full-size adults. Even with three kids, everything she has made over the past seven years is still standing." - Eric Wilkinson

Let's chat with Artist : Aline Bloch

We recently had the opportunity to chat with a local artist whose works also use material that would normally end up in the bin – cardboard.


“Compared to the brown boxes we all associate with cardboard, Aline’s art breaks the plane. Cute and colorful, they sport warm, Earthy colors and round corners."

"Cardboard furniture is not a new idea, but Aline's playful ingenuity has brought a fresh new flavor to a green idea whose time has come. Although an internet search (cardboard furniture) produces quite a variety of cardboard creations by artists and commercial enterprises, the personal touch is the signature of Aline's art." - Joseph Lamy
