These paper sculptures are part of my bird-life series. These sculptures are created using Wausau archival color papers and/or re-purposed magazine paper. Each of the approximately 3000 pieces of paper in each sculpture is hand cut, hand folded and connected to another paper unit with Lineco pH neutral glue. I am a Florida resident and am inspired by the wild life found in this unique environment. Read Less

These modular direct paper sculptures are part of my Bird Life series.They are inspired by wild life in the Florida environment.They are constructed with hand cut, hand folded, archival color inkjet paper,and/or re-purposed magazine paper modules and Ph Neutral glue. There are approximately 3000 or more triangular double-pocket, double-point modules of paper linked together.This is an ancient Chinese paper folding technique called Zhe Zhi. The architecture of folded, linked and glued paper units create a very strong and durable sculpture medium which permits direct paper sculpting. The science of topology dictates the slope and curve of the surface by the number of points linked in a level circumference. Archival paper is acid-free, color-stable. and often used as legal substrate for documentation and is suitable to last a minimum of 100 years.
