Tell us a little about your piece?
My papercut depicts a place called Port Campbell on the the southern coast of Victoria in Australia. The magnificent rock stacks you find there are called the 12 Apostles. They were created over time by the constant stormy seas eroding the limestone cliffs. It is a favourite place of mine to visit. My ocean papercut series has been inspired by this rugged southern coastline.
What was the most challenging part of the brief?
I usually working on large papercuts.
I found working to the small A5 scale required a different approach to cutting and composition.
I used this project to try something new. The challenge for me was to use shape and patterning with the papercut technique to represent rock formations.
What part of the collaboration did you enjoy the most?
Opening up the parcel and looking closely at all the contributions to the pac.project.
The level of skill and creativity is impressive.
With worldwide Covid restrictions, the spirit of the Travel and Adventure theme has taken on a more significant meaning. While most of us can’t travel far, this little book keeps travelling around the world and having its own adventures.
How did you enjoy working with the ErgoKiwi handle?
Good to use. I like the easy way the blade clicks into the handle. Changing blades is the time when most accidents happen!
