Globes and Pods

Globe Collection each globe approx. 10 inches across Patricia Chauncey

These are some of the pictures of my globes. I have been working for the last few years with globe and pods and focusing on creating deep textures within the form. The most simple form to explore is a globe. It is egg or cell and has an almost infinite surface. Light transforms them through changing shadows. Each view or aspect reads in a different way. Globes and pods have insides and outsides and allow for perforation and consequently air and light. They encourage translucency.

They are a reminder that a relationship with simple materials like paper and ancient methods like burning satisfy.

Thank you.

I will post a detail later. The photos don't really show the surface very well but at least give a sense.
