Paper Play Furniture
Default Title -
Paper Play Furniture
Hello I am Geetha, an upcoming Paper Artist and my Project proposal is for a “ Paper Play Furniture - A sturdy furniture which is the base to show case grand whimsical paper cut art work” for Paper Artist & Craft Lovers.
The project’s objective is to develop a furniture which caters to the need of show casing the art work of Paper Artist & Paper Crafters in a new easy and interactive way.
Though it is a niche category people across the world are quite passionate and love Paper craft be it Paper cutting or Quilling. This project would create awareness about Paper Cutting Art and Paper Craft. Paper cutting is considered an art across the world and in my native country India it is known as Sanjhi.
Paper Play Furniture
Table with Paper Cut Art Work.
“A sturdy table which is the base to show case grand whimsical paper cut art work.”
Table with Paper Cut Art Work:
The wooden table would be hollow and paper cut art would be placed in the hollow part of the table. I choose wood because it gives that unique, artisan feel. Wood can be made to look minimalistic and rustic. A glass pane on top of the table would provide protection to artwork below. Everyone would be able to look through transparent glass pane into the Paper cut artworks.
The table would be illuminated from below which would cast the most brilliant play of lights and shadows amongst the whimsical paper cuts.
Paper Play Table are affordable, practical and art pieces which infuses the sturdiness of a furniture and the fragility of Paper Art work.
Paper art work are quite fragile, intricate and delicate piece of artwork. The fragile nature of the paper artwork draws people in for a closer look. The fact that everyday object like Paper that we take for granted is transformed into grander piece of artwork is quite intriguing. Each cut paper work is individually created and original. Even if the subject is same, no two are identical.
I would lend my expertise to making Paper Artworks. I would create different Paper Art templates that could be made in my absence. I would also keep workshop on Paper art & craft. I would require assistance in making the table.
My vision for the final project is to have Customers,
- Buy the Paper Play Tables.
- Involve them in a workshop teaching various forms of Paper Art.
- Increase awareness for this wonderful art form.
A number of Quillers and Paper Artist make art work on regular basis. Paper Play Tables would be a medium to show case their art. People can extend and use the Paper Play Table to show case many other things also. Paper Artist can use the Paper Play Tables to photograph their artwork.
Need for Paper Play Furniture:
Some of the Paper cut art work are quite whimsical, creative, delicate and fragile. That is unique selling point of the Paper artwork. Paper craft when glued to a canvas and framed on a wall loses its fragility and not all Paper cut art work can be mounted on a wall. Paper craft when put on a frame on wall is subject to gravity and unless you glue the art work to the canvas there is no other alternative. 3D paper artwork would also take considerable space on the wall.
Paper Play tables would be quite original and relevant to paper artist because they create a natural sturdy shadow box. Paper artist can open the glass panes and delicately keep the paper art work inside the hollowed portion of the table. There would be no need to glue the paper work. Paper artist can exhibit multidimensional artwork. Paper Play Table would be helpful if you cannot put a frame in your apartment. Paper artwork is neatly tucked into a glass pane so it would be clutter free. Paper Play tables would be illuminated with LED lights from inside so there would be a brilliant play of shadows and light which would look magnificent in the night. Artist would revel more because it is their artwork which is creating the play of lights. In the day people would be able to see their Paper Art work and in the night they will love brilliant cast of light and shadows their Paper Art work makes.
Artist can take better photographs of their artwork on the Paper Play Table because it is illuminated from within. It would help Artist to take better pictures of their artwork for their social media networks or for online retail space.
Artist can modify the art work in the Paper Play Table many times so it would be a good buy.
The inspiration for this project comes from the lack of proper mediums to show case multidimensional paper art work. In the past I have glued my highly intricate Paper art work on to a canvas to frame it as there was no other option.
This project is very important to me as this would give me better exposure and give me more opportunities to grow as an artist in this field. It would enhance my interests and skills in the Paper Artwork. It would take me one step closer to host an exhibition in an art gallery.
Further it would give me opportunities and propel me into the direction of designing lifestyle products which are also art pieces.
I would disseminate the knowledge gained from the project to the local community through workshops. I would also spread the knowledge through my website www.GeethaKaarthikeyan.com and through my social media networks.
Each Paper Art would be $10 - $30 at the Cost Price. The Cost of the table can be determined only after consultation with people at The Workshop Residence.
