Folded Stones

FROM PAPER TO CONCRETE

“Folded Stones” is the name of a series, but also the main body of works and the title of an exhibition that was presented at Modern Shapes Gallery, in Antwerp, Belgium in 2021.

This series marks an important moment: it is a crossover between the 2D paper folding and solid concrete corpus.

Some pieces are direct translations of the paper folding, some are reinterpretations, and some have been designed from scratch without previous paper reference but with the idea that they could be translated back into paper. When it is the case, I have put the paper reference with the concrete models.

Paper Models

I used some paper models from my cut & fold Architectural Set as reference for these concrete sculptures

Paper Schematics

The schematics for the paper models are available to purchase/download.
More models are available in my store

Polystyrene Study Models

In some cases, I used 1 inch polystyrene boards to make tests.
