After seeing all of the talented designer-makers and their work on show at BCTF this year I have decided, over the next few weeks, to show you some of my favourites old and new....
So here is a quick look at the stunning work of Sharyn Dunn -Designer and maker of bespoke lighting and paper sculptures for the home and commercial environment. A fellow Design Factory member Sharyn works predominantly in a variety of papers and parchments and the media is truly brought to life with discreet illumination which gives a stunning array of shades, light and shadows. her BCTF stand was simply beautiful.
Sharyn’s work explores the interaction of light and shadow within geometric forms. Using a variety of materials predominantly papers, simulated parchments, tyvek and metals, she folds and manipulates them to create geometric and organic structures that develop their own unique light and shadow effects.
Taking inspiration from repetition found in the natural world, the designs are pierced into the structures either by hand or laser cutting and with the addition of creative lighting the resulting structures provide the observer with a unique, dynamic and though provoking experience.
Her range of work comprises of wall mounted or freestanding sculptures, lighting and bodywear.
