ABOUT THIS WORK
I didn't know it at the time, but one of the origins of quilling comes from nuns and monks using this technique to decorate their Bibles and religious items, often with the gilded edges of old books. When I made Evolve, I was anxiously waiting and preparing for a big trip. I found it soothing to do something repetitive with my hands. It's fun to play with - you can gently poke the different spirals of paper to peak into little mountains.
Note that this work is made out of construction paper that will fade (has already slightly faded) over time. (Personally, I find this beautiful!) If you don’t want it to fade, let me know and I can find a solution for you.
