Madrid’s Sona Grigoryan has been experimenting with strips of newspaper coiled to make forms. Here she shapes the paper coils into a shallow round vessel.
She tops the paper bowl with ribbons of polymer wound into a traditional design that becomes a lid.
Memories of her homeland are never far from her thoughts and historic Armenian designs often appear in Sona’s works. Here polymer is braided and curled into a lovely pattern that is then textured and antiqued to look ancient.
“I’m a free artist,” she says. “I don’t live a single day without making beautiful things or thinking about them.”
