New Work: Double Diagonal Shift Variant

Double diagonal shift variant

Double diagonal shift variant

This piece is a continuation of my diagonal shift series, combining the diagonal shift variant where the width of the piece changes with a form I folded recently. Unlike my earlier piece where the central section of the vase was essentially shifted to one side, here the central section is mostly cut away and only a small supporting cylinder remains. In that way, this piece has some commonalities with my most recent divided vases. I also chose to use two different colors of paint here in addition to the black of the paper, which I haven’t used much since my painted vases more than a year ago.

As usual, this piece is folded from one uncut rectangle of Elephant Hide paper. I used a bit of glue to turn the paper into a cylinder, and the rest of the form is wet-folded.
