New work: Gold diagonal shift vase

Gold diagonal shift vase

Gold diagonal shift vase

Over the past several months, I’ve spent quite a bit of time and effort developing vases with a diagonal shift element, based on the crease patterns here. This model is another variation on the same theme. I’ve taken the color pattern from my first double diagonal shift vase and applied it to a smaller, simpler vase form.

As always, this piece is folded from one uncut rectangle of Elephant Hide paper. The gold sections were painted with acrylic paint before the model is folded. I measured out a sine curve using a ruler and used masking tape to get a clean straight edge.
