Adhesive tape thus far has mainly been known as a material for packing or repairs; but for Peter Schäfer, it is a kind of raw material like clay, glass or wicker, out of which you can easily form all kinds of containers, like bowls. The especially ingenious part is that each bowl is truly an original – even if the purely manual process were to be given over to machine production.
