New Work: Three-Part Vase

Three-part vase

Three-part vase

This vase is the newest addition to my Intersections series, using the modified pleating folding technique I developed for my last piece.  Here I am continuing to use flat planes to intersect the curved form, uniting a precise mathematical shape with a flowing organic shape.  This piece uses vertical planes to cut the form into thirds and horizontal planes to cut off the three parts at different heights.  I started planning this piece in July and only recently decided I had the time and folding ability to actually make it.  Each of the three parts is folded from a rectangle of Elephant Hide paper.
