MAKING: Paper Boats: Studio practice; Fieldwork

These originated with the exploration of paper forms using elements of origami and slit and cut techniques fixing with toothpicks, reeds, stitch and thread. The emerging vessels echoed a range of shapes from sake cups and bowls to coracles.

As they float well – on water, oil and oil and milk mix – I began to see them as boats – a series that I have developed using materials ranging from paper to porcelain and latex.
