Indigo Paper Sculpture IV
Indigo Paper Sculpture IV, by Surrey-based papermaker Jane Ponsford, is an exquisite piece that forms part of a collection of work created exclusively for The New Craftsmen. Having recently begun making dyes from found and foraged materials, Jane discovered the ancient – and magical – process of producing Indigo. As soon as the dyed item is removed from its liquid and meets oxygen, the chemical composition changes and transforms into beautiful indigo blue. Housed under a glass cloche this ethereal paper and wire sculpture becomes a curiosity.
