Techniques: Paper is a natural illustrative medium. Wood pulp, vegetable or cotton fibers are beaten down, mixed with water and pressed into paper. This organic composition provides the tensile strength yet the flexibility needed for delicate manipulation. A flat piece of paper can be very deceiving. Those who recognize its versatility and limitations are gifted with a boundless palette from which to create. Paper can be curled, rolled, folded or scored without tearing. A knowledge of flexibility, weight and texture, through hands-on application, will result in your ability to create paper sculpture images. With few cuts and gentle curves, paper is transformed from a flat surface into a 3-Dimensional network of light and shadow. Crush a piece of paper in your hand and gently flatten it out. Notice how the folds and creases enhance the overall dimension of the paper.
