This set of mandalas were inspired by the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water. Created by folding a single piece of black paper and cutting it sections at a time, the process can be very meditative as well as the result. After the base is cut, the colored pieces are then layered on top.
I plan to do a short demo on this technique in my studio at tomorrow’s open house, The Building’s World Famous Summer Spectacular. The final four “Element Series” pieces will be on display together before “Earth” gets shipped off to a group show in Massachusetts. I’m thinking of having a workshop on this technique if I can generate enough interest… the process takes patience but the results can be so satisfying!
