we made these beautiful “sea foam” forms from rice paper and wire for the hermès holiday windows. i created this installation in the studio before shipping them to LA. they’re just one component of the windows (i’ll post photos of the completed windows soon) and i love their simplicity and elemental quality.
the process of making them took a lot of experimentation. we made the armature from steel wire and then traced around it on the rice paper. the cut-out rice paper shapes were then soaked in diluted white glue and draped over the forms. the paper dried taut around the wire armature, stiff but still semi-transparent.
