WINTERWORKS  Paper Cuts by Lucinda Clarke

For years I've worked on various ways to display my work in windows and on a larger scale.  I began to cut my  circular designs of interlocking insects, animals, botanicals and trees from Tyvek house wrap (a sort of industrial plastic paper) and mounted them on wire rings.  Most recently I've been cutting my designs from aluminum.  It's difficult to cut the 8 layers of the Window Webs, so I've gone back to designs folded just 4 or 2 times. Displayed in windows, the silver aluminum reflects the light from outdoors for high visibility. Not only humans, but birds can see the bright light reflected in the windows and so may be useful as 'bird alerts'.   Bookmarks and wall hangings are painted with dark metallic paint on one side for strong visual contrast for display.

Lanterns and More

  My cut paper lanterns are a constructed from wood, copper wire and hand cut paper.  There is a different paper design stitched onto each side of the square,  which are designed to hold a battery powered candle. I'm still working on the final design for these!

Finally, each year a new WinterWorks design is silk screened onto shirts which are available at the annual Open Studios at the Button Factory in Portsmouth, NH along with many of my other projects.
 Here is a display of some of the various Winterworks tees worn by family members ....That is me on the far left!
