Fault Plane

Artist's statement


Fault Plane features two large folds surrounding the opening which gives the appearance of heavy metal origami. The bottom is demurely folded over itself. The distinct quality of steel and the combinations of textures reveal unique compositions much like the layering of fine, handmade papers. It is this creative unfolding of each piece that has captured my interest in this form.

Artist's Bio


With a background in graphic arts, Kristin has dealt with the design and construction of books, black and white photography, letterpress and offset printing. Recently she has used her design background to create pieces in metal. The distinct quality of steel and the combinations of textures reveal unique compositions much like the layering of fine handmade papers. Reinterpreting ideas in metal can turn the most ordinary form on its head and give it a distinctly new identity. I enjoy envisioning this transformation and witnessing all the twists and turns that often take the piece into a completely different realm from the one I had planned on. It is this creative unfolding of each piece that has captured my interest in this form.
