Quilling using Paplin and 80 lbs archival paper, 5” x 5.5” x 3.25”, 2019

The work the cased within a glass display case and is protected using an archival UV protectant varnish.

 

Quilling is a traditionally craft and hobby based practice that combines manipulating, weaving and spinning thin sheets of paper for decorative purposes, often 2D compositions. Popularized in 18th century England, it remains a niche practiced to this day.

A craft I practiced throughout my childhood, I have now been using quilling as a medium to recreate ceramic pieces from my paternal grandfather’s vintage Wedgwood collection; cherished ornamental objects he took to collecting in the hundreds in the 1950’s. This particular model features a Queensware Lavender on Cream Teacup and Saucer set.

My intention in this work was to safeguard the familial lineage preceding me and the keepsakes I have now inherited. These quilled objects served as a means to archive and preserve the collective memory and tradition of past familial relics.
