Tell us a little about your piece?
I wanted to recreate one of my 3D decorated origami cranes into a version that would fit within the pages of the PACPassport book.
So I folded an origami crane, and then unfolded it and used the unfolded base of the crane as my "blank canvas".
For the theme of travelling and adventure, I created 8 pairs of different types of wings, which I then arranged in a harmonious way on top of the unfolded crane.
What was the most challenging part of the brief?
As usual, the most challenging part of the brief was deciding on a concept. I wanted to add an extra layer of symbolism to my piece by using leftover paper from other projects. So my first step was to place all the paper scraps on my desk and pick the ones I felt worked best for this project.
What part of the collaboration did you enjoy the most?
Aside from working on my own contribution, I loved very much seeing what the other artists taking part in the project came up with. It is a truly beautiful collection of interpretations of the creative brief!
How did you enjoy working with the ErgoKiwi handle?
I am very used to using my Excel Blades knife, so I had a bit of a hard time finding the best way to use the ErgoKiwi handle at first. Once I had made some practice cuts with it, it became increasingly more comfortable to use and I felt I had better control of it.
