New Work: Hinged Bowl, Version 2

Hinged bowl

Hinged bowl

This piece is a new version of this model, also part of my Intersections series. The bowl is hinged so it can open and close.  In the original piece, I used a pleated folding technique where all the folds pointed in the same direction. Unfortunately, this caused some distortions in the shape, which are hidden in the photo I posted.  Here I modified the folding technique to use alternating directions of the pleats.  Since the folding is more symmetric, the shape of the bowl also stays more symmetric.  I am planning to use this new folding technique as I continue this series.  This piece is folded from a rectangle of Elephant Hide paper.
