This short film covers the day to day working life of Paul Firbank, AKA ‘The Rag & Bone Man’. Paul spends his days creating truly beautiful lamps from discarded items he finds buried in East London’s scrapyards. The film is just 4:20 long and so is well worth taking the time to watch, it’s encouraging that there are men like Firbank out there still creating unique, handmade stuff that we’d all love to have sitting next to the couch.
