DECOUVERTE : Lisa Catterson – from mushroom to jewel through paper

Lisa Catterson : « I am constantly attracted to repetition and layers within nature. My work focuses on the delicate layers of gills I find within mushrooms.
Growing my own mushrooms allowed me to document the different stages of the growth through photography and detailed linear drawings.
I use the soft delicate nature of handmade paper to convey the subtle beauty I find through my research. The lightweight quality of the paper allows me to build up many layers within my work, portraying the changing contours of the gills.
I have used a reduced colour palette to focus attention on the repeated layer forms. » (Glasgow School of Art Silversmithing and Jewellery BA (Hons), graduate portfolio)
