Paper, although not always considered valuable, turns into something of value and beauty through time and care. Hand folding along repeated lines adds structure and strength to fragile and delicate paper. The arrangement of the folds creates shadows in the crevices and highlights on the ridges resulting in an effect that is somewhat like a miniature light work. Formal yet playful the paper pieces transform into tiny sculptures for the body reminiscent of fans, shells and architecture.
