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.”
Her growing body of work is cataloged on Flickr and she posts regularly to Facebook.
Thanks for the feature, dear Cynthia!! )
Sona is wildly inventive…she is always coming up with some new thing we haven’t seen before. Excellent !
Randee M Ketzel ,
I watch Sona’s work daily–she is an amazing innovator.
Oh, I love that! Obviously, those would make stunning jewelry, too. (Can I wish for a tutorial?!)
Now that’s thinking outside the box! Truly beautiful!
