Description

This colourful, strong and lightweight sculptural form is created to stimulate the viewer. It evokes thoughts of movement, while simultaniously displaying powerfully strong lines which may elicit feelings of something emerging.

The piece has vibrant colours which add a playful touch. The paper topcoat is made of tissue paper in various tones of a colour, or complementary colours which mix and merge in a similar way to paint. The coloured paper is very thin, and translucent, which allows partial mixing when wet with glue. The photos I have taken really do not do not demonstrate the depth of the colours very well!

The piece is made using pâpier machè. The more complex, folded shapes have a steel wire frame as a base. Pâpier machè is a surprisingly strong and versitile material. Each layer of paper expands and develops the final shape. Time is taken to allow the pieces to dry thoroughly during the process as this adds strength. Finally, clear varnish is added to seal the paper, adding lusture and shine, whilst also enhancing the colours. This part of the process also protects the piece from dust and makes it wipe-proof with a damp cloth.

I have enjoyed making this and the others available. The aim was to expand my crreative attributes, not to form a business. Therefore, there is a small selection of pieces to choose from, each one unique and the only one quite like it in the world!

The price does not reflect the time and effort that are required to produce these pieces. However, they are for sale as are designed to be enjoyed not stored in a cupboard. So, please look after them!

If placed on a window sill or in bright light, the colours will fade.

The large circular bowls have an attachment to facilitate hanging on a wall.

If you would like to add a vibrant sculptural form, which also can function as a bowl, to enhance your environment, then this could be what you are looking for.

All best wishes,

Naomi
