Playing with Paper

Recently we have had some classes in paper engineering. I have really enjoyed these and have produced some fantastic yet simple pieces. I love these because of the bright colours and geometrical patterns.
This folded paper work is great to photograph – showing how the shadows show the 3D form. This is particularly effective because of how this means they appear to create different patterns when seen from different angles.
Some of these techniques are very simple yet very effective.


  1. I have worked with Precious Metal Clay in my jewellery (becomes fine silver after firing) and they make a thin sheet ‘paper’ PMC that can be folded – perhaps something you might like to explore at a later stage?
