White Paper Sculpture - JELLYFISH

This is the third piece of my recent PAPER SCULPTURE Project, called "TEXTURES".

The first piece was SEA URCHIN, the second one SWIRLS, and one more is in the works, for a total of 4 paper art pieces.

I named this one JELLYFISH because it reminded me of the marine creatures' translucent form. Leaning against my window, the sculpture had a similar feel, like looking at a swarm of jellyfish from above.

Looking at it from a side, it reminds me of mushrooms, but as this is a marine-inspired series, I prefer jellyfish.

The final piece is coming, too.

Again, it will be made of just paper, canvas and glue, and it will be some sort of sea creature.

White Paper Sculpture - SWIRLS

This is the second piece of my recent PAPER SCULPTURE Project, called "TEXTURES".

The first piece was SEA URCHIN, and I have 2 more in the works.

For this one, all I can say is that it was inspired by coral reefs, swirls and the technique of quilling paper.
I like how the swirls let the light through in different ways, so when you look at it and move your head it looks like the swirls are spinning.

White Prickly Paper Sculpture - SEA URCHIN

I have started a series of paper art pieces called "TEXTURES".

The idea is to have differently textured sculptures made only from three things:

- canvas,
- glue, and
- paper.

The paper in all 3 or 4 pieces will be the same. The only thing I can play with is the shape of the paper.

I have finished 2 so far, with the 3rd piece almost complete and I'm thinking of doing one more. We'll see.

This one was inspired by the shape of a sea urchin. It's prickly and wavy, soft and edgy. It sits on my window for now, waiting for the other pieces to be ready before they can all go to hang on the wall together.
