The Dawning Place

Tell us a little about your piece?

'The Dawning Place' wearable head piece represents the beginning of the first appearance of light. This piece can be worn as a crown or collar and connects its viewers to playful world of fantasy and make-believe. 

What was the most challenging part of the brief?

My paper works mostly work with patterns as their main language- so I choose to look at the brief as an invitation to try something new and realize some ideas that I had been holding onto for a while.

What part of the collaboration did you enjoy the most?

I loved thinking of this collaboration as an opportunity to experiment with paper in a playful way. I wanted to push myself out of my comfortable zone with the paper while creating a piece that is wearable and majestic. 

How did you enjoy working with Excel Blades, tools?

I loved it! I kept it simple working with the grip-on knife and #11 blades. I love the versatility of both.
