Kate Colin is a designer/maker based in Glasgow who works with paper to create handmade lighting, wall art and installations.. Inspired by origami and geometic forms, Kate's bold and sculptural work emphasises the interplay between light and shade.
She is interested in colour, tonal variations, shadow and geometric form and uses her work as a vehicle to explore how they interact with one another.
Each piece is scored, folded and assembled by hand and when illuminated, their appearance is radically transformed: folds, creases and angles become emphasised while an intensity of colour is brilliantly revealed.
