A good friend of mine commissioned this quilled paper piece for his now fiancé. He wanted it with a base of black, with colour scattered throughout it.
I loved this idea and set about making a super colourful piece, despite the amount of black used with it. The jet black paper makes the other colours pop right out.
I use a lot of black in my multi coloured pieces, but mainly to edge the coil, rather than be the dominant colour.
Rather than courier this piece, I got to hand deliver it to my friends in Otaki!
This piece gave me the inspiration for the White & Gold bowl, which you can check out here!
