the paper garden

paper sculpture at Bundanon

Something i enjoyed doing while at Bundanon was a series of temporary miniature sculptural installations in the bush, THE PAPER GARDEN, made of paper (of course). I would have liked to do some more of that sort of thing, but had other stuff i needed to work on. I would like to do something similar in an urban setting, so i'm keeping an eye out for good spots.

Jade, this is so beautiful. You really are a special artist. I love the way you make this work so well!

I have just been for a walk in our local fields in Hampshire, and can just imagine these pieces out there in the dried up hedges.
I also like the wax and paper below.

The paper has a wonderful aesthetic in the world where it once lived. Plus, this makes quite a statement about the environment we live in and teh way we impact it. Very elegant!

I love your paper gardens and the idea to install it in an urban surrounding is delightful

Hi i have been working on a similar theme for my degree show, i am representing mould using paper and felt, displaying it in a way that is recognisable to society. I love the delicacy of your paper, do you make it yourself? the type i use, i make from natural ephemera and it is a lot more coarse.
