OUR SCISSORS Exhibition, Design Museum of Helsinki, Sept-Oct 2017

FISKARS celebrates its 50th Anniversary of the Iconic Orange Handles Scissors!. I am thrilled to be part of this incredible show on view at the Design Museo in Helsinki Finland. To celebrate the scissors anniversary, and my love and adoration of this scissor, I created and installed a folkloric blooming arch entitled "A Petal's Edge". 

 I have always been very inspired by Finland and Lapland's folk arts, like design details found in embroideries, painted ceramics, quilts and folklore. I reinterpreted this imagery, to create my own pattern. I created a 3D version of this pattern and explored using the side of the paper in multiple to create dimension. Secondly, when the curators told me I was exhibiting under an arch, I wanted to create a lovely, blooming, dynamic garden for viewers to walk under.
