Incredible modular forms made out of paper by Richard Sweeney.

Richard Sweeney  gets  inspirations for his work from nature : mounds of snow and clouds are sources of inspiring ideas.  Sweeney is currently part of a touring show titled Above the fold. He’ll be showing his work at the Coda Museum in Apeldoorn this summer. What I like about it the most, is that when I look closer and focus on particular parts of these extraordinary sculptures, I see that because they are three-dimensional,  each part looks different, depending on the angle I look .  Depending if I look at the whole piece or close-up,  we perceive it in different way.

I think that these paper sculptures have potential and if developed further, could be applied to something else like furniture, architecture.

Time to start to explore materials . Clay and plaster. My first steps in making tiles.

Last two weeks with clay workshop gave me some clue about two new materials : clay and plaster. What I like most about workshops at uni? I think it’s the freedom which the teachers give us to expand whatever I’m interested in. Same with design-  there are no boundaries, the new designs are more and more surprising and exciting.

In the workshop I started to explore and experiment with the materials and I made a few tiles .

Underneath are a few pictures of my work from yesterday’s workshop:

These two pictures are my first designs for tiles. I made two sets, but made only of the first set.  I designed two pieces as one ( the round one ) is he design, and the triangle one plays he role of filling the gap. I  imagine tiles as white and sleek, in some futuristic interior.
