The Paper series is a functional dinnerware series that uses a simple creased paper form. I cast this form by hand in porcelain, transforming the often-discarded flawed object, fragile and temporary, into something robust and permanent.
This work is about using porcelain to create a surprising tactile experience. The simple, random distribution of creases in the porcelain surface of the objects creates complex patterns of light, shade and texture that disrupt the smooth surface to mimic crushed paper and invite investigation and touch.
