Sewn Paper Objects

Preorder Tatoo book by Scene360

These are paper sculptures made by Jennifer Collier. Her technique consists of “[…] bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching, I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics,’ which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects.” [1]

Notes from the artist’s statement:


The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles.

The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms.

I tend to find items then investigate a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away.
