I turned the tables in celebration of Episode #100. Barb Tetenbaum interviewed me!
We talked a little bit about my senior thesis work at The University of the South, where I got a BA in Art. Here are some images of those pieces, which were created in 1987 and influenced by origamic architecture.
When I went out on my own in the mid-1990’s, I created paper products, but ultimately decided that I didn’t enjoy the production process. Here are a few: The Potted Lamp and another abaca paper/wire lamp.
