When faced with the task of finishing their hallway, Flickr member Bridgman Pottery decided to go with a paper they discovered in a Vietnamese grocery.

It's joss paper, a traditional Chinese material made of thin bamboo paper. The paper is burned at funerals and worship ceremonies. However, Bridgman Pottery has also found a love for the material as an art medium.

They say it took approximately 2 months and $50 to do the walls of their 7'-by-4' hallway.
