Mayumi has just finishes her post-graduate textile course this September.
Her woven paper yarn fabric can be treated like strong paper to fashion and hold a shape.
By experimenting with different types of paper yarn, and different weave structures, she has been able to produce fabrics with varying degrees of stiffness and malleability, and with a variety of colours, textures and patterns.
Of the many properties of paper yarn fabric, for this project, she has chosen to develop its capability to be fashioned into sculptural objects. Her lamp coverings show various sculptural forms, both abstract and geometric. Origami folding creates strength and the resulting faceted shapes produce the variety of light and shadow which she loves.
