Inspired by the merchandise at Clad In, this tower was designed and created to be displayed in the store.
There is such beauty in that which is imperfect. Thus, the inspiration for my sculpture came from a pearl necklace in Clad In that made use of irregular, baroque pearls. I was inspired by the opalescent surface of the pearls as well as the asymmetry and irregularity of the form. I created a tower attempting to capture an undulating, organic form of the pearls. The form of my piece was created through the binding and layering of tracing paper with glue. The translucence of the paper allows the piece to appear more ethereal, a quality that I saw in the pearls.
