About the Pieces

Each piece is a combination of between two and four units, where each unit is hand-folded from one circle of paper with a circular hole and hand-scored concentric circular creases. The pieces are combined by joining a few key points together; the rest of the shape is formed from the natural equilibrium of the paper.

Material: Elephant hide paper.
Dimensions: 10" × 10" × 8" • 9" × 8" × 10" • 10" × 9" × 8" • 6" × 10" × 7" • 11" × 10" × 12" • 13" × 8" × 10".
